What is 50 basis points on 800000?
What I think you may be referring to are "basis points". If that is the case, a basis point is essentially a fraction of a % (1/100). So, for every 1%, there are 100 basis points. If this did not answer your question, please let me know. If you are referring simply to "the market is up a half a point"... then that is just one dollar. There is no real reason for calling dollars…
They're basiS points. Each cent (if we're talking money) or percent (if we're talking percentages) is broken into 100 basis points. It's just a way to get rid of a LOT of decimals. Example: if the interest on a Jones Steel bond rose from 7 percent to 8.25 percent, they say it went up 125 basis points.
using information from a Microsoft point converter, 50 ms points is worth nothing, it is impossible to 'get it' but in conjunction with buying things, it is possible to have that many points remaining. If you are a member of Xbox Live Rewards it is possible to get 50 points again it is worth nothing
