Conversion factor

• Rules set by the Chicago Board of Trade for determining the invoice price of each acceptable deliverable Treasury issue against the Treasury Bond futures contract.

• For the credit futures markets, it is the number that relates different coupons and acceptable deliverable maturities for delivery against the contract standard of an 8 percent coupon and the stipulated acceptable time remaining to maturity specifications. For the security markets, it is the contractual number that indicates how many shares a convertible security can be exercised into at any point in time.
