Daily Margin Interest Accrued
The daily margin interest accrued is based on the previous business day’s margin balance and refers to interest applicable for that day.

When the previous business day is a Friday or the day preceding a market holiday, interest is accrued forward. As such, in a typical week, the number shown on Saturday morning will account for interest accrued for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Daily Reference CPI
The daily CPI rate used to calculate the Index Ratio (Inflation Factor)

Daily Unit Value
The most recent value of a variable annuity investment option. The value of an investment option is measured in units.

The value will rise and fall each business day depending on investment performance.

Date
The date a trade order was received by Fidelity, or the date a transaction in your account or annuity contract’s transaction history occurred. In tax information the date on which the corresponding transaction took place. Depending on the transaction, this may be the date that payment was made (dividends, interest) or withholding took place.

Date Acquired
The date on which shares are added to a Fidelity account.


  • If you originally acquired the shares through this account, the date acquired is the trade date. For example, if you bought the shares through this account on 7/15/1999, the date acquired is 7/15/1999.
  • If you acquired the shares in an online trading account at another brokerage firm, and transferred the shares to this Fidelity account, the date acquired is the date Fidelity received the shares. For example, if you bought the shares at another brokerage on 8/15/1999 and transferred them to this Fidelity account on 9/30/1999, the Date Acquired defaults to 9/30/1999, unless you update the information.

When entering or editing date acquired, use the mm/dd/yyyy format.

Date and Time
On the Employee Stock Purchase Plan History screen, this is the date that a balance-altering transaction type (contributions, matching contributions, withdrawals) took place.

Dated Date
For some new issue fixed-income securities (e.g., bonds), this is the date on which coupon interest will begin to accrue.

Dated Date Reference CPI

The system defaults to All, or you can specify a range by selecting 3 months, 9 months, or a duration of up to 3 years. Settings are persistent, i.e., settings are saved until modified again. Note that not all long-term equity anticipation securities (LEAPs) will have data up to 3 years.

Date Sold
The date on which the security was sold. The date a security is sold determines in which tax year the gain/loss has tax implications.

Date/Time
When displayed in a chart:


  • If you originally acquired the shares through this account, the date acquired is the trade date. For example, if you bought the shares through this account on 7/15/1999, the date acquired is 7/15/1999.
  • If you acquired the shares in an online trading account at another brokerage, and transferred the shares to this Fidelity account, the date acquired is the date Fidelity received the shares. For example, if you bought the shares at another brokerage on 8/15/1999 and transferred them to the Fidelity account on 9/30/1999, the Date Acquired defaults to 9/30/1999, unless you update the information.

If you enter tax lots in the Enter Lots section of the Tax Lots Choose Specific Shares screen, enter this date in mm/dd/yyyy format.

Day

Day Low (Low)
The lowest price traded for this security during the current trading day.

Day Order

Day Trade
A day trade occurs when you buy and sell or execute a short sale and then buy the same security during the same business day.

Day Trade Buying Power
For an account that is not restricted and does not have an outstanding day trade call, you can execute day trades of marginable securities valued at up to four times your account’s exchange surplus by utilizing time and tick. The value of the securities you hold in margin is calculated using the securities’ previous day closing prices. If a day trade minimum equity call has been issued against the account, your account balances will reflect the Day Trade Minimum Equity Call rather than your Day Trade Buying Power.

Day Trade Call
A day trade call occurs when your account exceeds its day trading buying power. When this occurs, you must generally deposit funds to settle the call within five business days. However, Fidelity reserves the right to meet margin calls at any time prior to the stated due date.

Day Trade Calls Due Today
This is the total amount you owe today for all day trade calls due on this date and any prior calls that may be past due. This amount does not include any margin call amounts that may also be due.

Day Trade Calls Issued
This is the total dollar amount for any day trade calls that have been officially issued against your account.

You generally have five business days from the date a day trade call is issued to deposit additional cash or securities to settle the call amount. Fidelity reserves the right to meet margin calls at any time prior to the stated due date.

Day Trade Minimum Equity Call
A type of margin call. If your account equity falls below the $25,000 minimum day trade equity requirement, a day trade minimum equity call is issued against your account. You generally have five business days to settle the call, but Fidelity reserves the right to meet margin calls at any time prior to the stated due date. If your account is not restricted and does not have an outstanding day trade minimum equity call, your account balances will reflect your Day Trade Buying Power rather than the Day Trade Minimum Equity Call.

Day Trader
You are considered a pattern day trader if you execute four or more day trades, you buy and sell or execute a short sale and then buy the same security during the same business day, over a five business day period.

Debit Spread
An options strategy consisting of the buying and selling of options on the same underlying stock, in which the cost of the option purchases is greater than the proceeds of the sale, resulting in a debit at the time of entry into the strategy. Breaking even or profiting from a debit spread requires that the value of the purchased options increase to cover at least the debit.

Rules: A debit spread consists of either all calls or all puts on the same underlying with the same expiration date.
Example:      Calls – Long call strike is lower than the short call strike
                    Puts – Short put strike is lower than the long put strike

Debt Type

For an open indication of interest in a new issue fixed-income offering (e.g., bond) for which securities have not been allocated, this is an option you can select to delete an indication of interest and end your participation in a new issue offering. Once deleted, you will not be eligible to receive an allocation of securities even if you had previously confirmed your indication of interest.

You can attempt to delete an indication of interest at any time before securities are allocated.
Attempts to delete indications of interest are performed on a best efforts basis. There is no guarantee that an indication of interest can be deleted, in whole or in part.

Example:      A position delta of 0.50 means that for every $1 change in the underlying, the combined option value would rise/fall by $0.50.

DeMinimis
A DeMinimis rollover occurs when an employee with a defined benefit or defined contribution plan account with a balance between $1,000 and $5,000 is terminated by an employer. To prevent immediate taxation, the balance is automatically rolled over to a rollover IRA account, which allows the employee to retain the balance in a tax-deferred account.

  • You provide more than half of that person’s support (subject to some exceptions).
  • The individual to be claimed as a dependent must not have filed a joint return with a spouse, (subject to some exceptions).
  • The individual to be claimed as a dependent must be a citizen, national or resident of the United States (subject to some exceptions).

Deposit Funds
When you deposit cash to cover your tax withholding due, you will receive all of the shares in your grant, but you will need to deposit enough funds in your account by the transaction date to cover your tax withholding obligation.

Derivative Securities
A derivative’s value may be based on another security, an index, or an interest rate. For example, an option is a derivative instrument because its value derives from an underlying stock or stock index.

Description, Issue Description
The full name of the security corresponding to a symbol or a CUSIP.


  • For fixed-income securities (e.g., bonds), the name of the issuer, maturity, and coupon rate are included in the description.
  • For certain securities whose principal value is calculated with the inclusion of a factor (e.g., mortgage-backed securities), the value of the factor is displayed in the description of the security.
  • For an option, the underlying security’s full name, the expiration date, whether the option is a call or a put, and the strike price
  • For bond ladders, varies by the type of bond, but generally includes the type of fixed income security (e.g., U.S. Treasury Note, Tennessee Housing Development Agency), whether it is callable or subject to alternative minimum tax, the coupon interest rate, the date the first coupon interest payment was paid, the maturity date, the call date, etc.

Diagonal Spread
The diagonal spread is a variation of the calendar spread involving the simultaneous purchase and sale of two options of the same class (i.e., calls or puts), with different expiration dates, and different strike prices. Diagonal spreads are used by traders who have specific notions about the direction of the underlying stock’s price, the velocity of that movement, the magnitude and timing of it, or implied volatility views. Diagonal spreads can be established for either a credit or debit, depending upon which strikes and expiration months have been selected. In some cases, diagonal spreads may be less expensive than calendar spread.

The basic diagonal spread is created by the purchase of a deferred call or put and the sale of a near term call or put with different strike prices, or the sale of a deferred call or put and the purchase of a near term call or put with different strike prices. Because the different strike prices can change the premium paid or collected when initiating a diagonal spread, it’s necessary to spell out exactly which month and strike price is “the long” and which month and strike price is “the short.”

Different Fund Families (Cross Family Trade)
Funds owned by one company are considered to be in a different family than funds owned by another company. For example, Fidelity funds are in a different family than Janus funds. When you perform a cross family trade, you are selling the shares you own in one fund family and using the proceeds to buy shares in another fund family. Though submitted as one transaction, a cross family trade is actually two: a sell order, which generally settles on the trade date, and a buy order, which generally settles on the next business day after the sell order’s settlement date.

When you exchange funds, you are selling shares of a fund you own and using the proceeds to buy shares in another fund in the same fund family.

Directed

Order information you specified indicating you want your order directed to a specific exchange for execution. When you ask for an order to be directed to a specific exchange for execution, you assume responsibility for best execution of the order.

Disallowed Loss
The monetary amount of loss realized from selling shares that cannot be counted as a loss due to the IRS’ wash sale rule.

Discount
This refers to when a fixed-income security (e.g., a bond) is bought or sold at a price that is below the face value. For example, if a bond’s face value is $1,000 and it sells for $900, it was sold at a discount.

Discount Yield
This is the yield on a security that is sold at a discount, a security you buy for less than the face value at maturity and then get the full face value once the security matures.

For example, Treasury bills (T-bills) are sold at a discount. If a T-bill sold for $975 and you could redeem it for $1,000 at maturity in 90 days, your gain would be $250 and the yield for the 90 day period would be a discount yield.

Display
The amount of results you would like shown for your search request on the multi-leg option tools. (i.e.: 10, 25 or 50 results)

Disqualifying Disposition
For U.S. federal tax purposes the sale, gift, or exchange of shares acquired through exercise of an incentive stock option or a Section 423 employee stock purchase plan within two years of the grant date or within one year of the purchase date.

Upon a disqualifying disposition, participants in employee stock purchase plans and incentive stock option plans are required to recognize any resulting gain (up to the spread at exercise and purchase) as taxable ordinary compensation income.
The sale, gift, or exchange of shares acquired through exercise of a qualified stock option prior to the end of the disqualifying disposition period may cause you to cease to qualify for favorable tax treatment of your grant. Consult your grant agreement and your tax advisor for the rules applicable to your grant.

Disqualifying Exercise
For non-U.S. tax purposes the exercise of a qualified stock option prior to the end of the disqualifying exercise period may cause you to cease to qualify for favorable tax treatment of your grant. Consult your grant agreement and your tax advisor for the rules applicable to your grant.

For example, the change in price of a share in a mutual fund held in a 403(b), 401(k), or 457 account.

Dollar-Cost-Averaging
With dollar-cost-averaging, you invest a fixed amount on a regular basis – regardless of the current market trends. The investor buys more shares when the price is low and fewer shares when the price is high; the overall cost is lower than it would be if a constant number of shares were bought at set intervals. Dollar-cost-averaging does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. You must continue to purchase shares both in market ups and downs. The goal of dollar-cost-averaging is to attain a lower average cost per share.
