Recent search activity will now appear under a drop-down menu on each page below our man ListMetrics box. The box will store up to the last ten searches performed and is deleted once you log out. Thus, upon a new session, no drop down menu will appear until some new searches have been made.

The auto-complete feature of our search form has been updated to give you access to more essential data before you commit to a search, ensuring that your searches are of the utmost relevance.

In our circled example above, the metadata is as follows:

* 16:5, the 16 represents the number of times this bond appears in our trade database, the 5 represents the number of times this bond appears in our offers database.
* 06/14/11, this is the date of the most recent datapoint in our database for this bond, it may be from either the trade or the offer database.
