Is the Best Quoted Bid Price the same as the Clean Price for bonds? I understand that the Clean Price is the Dirty Price less Accrued Interests, however, I am a bit confused of why the Bid Price = Clean Price in every single case. Can anyone help me understand this or make sense of it?
The data is from Thomson Reuters Datastream. The spreadsheet in the picture shows 2 bonds for a period of 2 weeks, but I see the "bid price" = "clean price" occurring for another 200+ bonds over 5 years.
