Buck

1. Among traders, informal for $1 million.

2. More generally, informal for one dollar or one euro. See also: Breaking the buck.

3. In bond trading, 1/10 of one dollar of a bond price. Because bonds often are quoted in terms of 1,000 points (and not in terms of dollars), a buck is equivalent to one point.
