A bond is an over-the-counter exchange-traded fund (ETF) and fixed-income financial instrument issued by corporations and governments (IOU) as debt securities (Coupon and Zero-coupon bonds) for a period of time mainly to pay down other debts and operations funding purposes through brokerage firms in the secondary market.
Bond trading is when bond investors and traders (lenders) are allowed to buy or sell corporate bonds and government bonds (bond issuers) in the bond market (public debt market). The issuer (borrower) must pay back the bond price (face value), interest rate, and a fixed or variable interest payment (dividend) to the bondholders on the bond maturity date. Traders consider bond investing one of the most effective portfolio diversification strategies.
Treasury bonds and agency bonds are fixed income securities issued by governments and corporations for a fixed period of time and sold to investors who can purchase bonds as debt obligations and profit from the bond price and market volatility, coupon payments (dividends) and yield to maturity.
Bond trading is mainly affected by the stock market conditions and liquidity, interest rate risk, issuance of new bonds, the bond issuer’s credit quality, credit risk and credit rating. Bond funds are more volatile because they don’t have a fixed price and interest rate. The price of the bond is in an inverse relationship with interest rates.
A bond rate is fixed at its purchase, and the bond issuer must pay interest regularly until the bond’s maturity, in which the original sum of the investment must be paid back to the bond investors.
Suppose you want to trade CFDs, where the underlying asset is the US10YR, known as ‘’US 10yr T-Note” Let us suppose that the US10YR is trading at BID 130.62 ASK 131.76
You decide to buy 100 contracts of US10YR because you think that the US10YR price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 1%. This means that you need to deposit 1% of the total position value into your margin account.
1% x (100 x 131.76) = 131.76 USD
In the next hour, if the bond price moves to 132.3/133.2, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current (bid) price of US10YR, which is 132.3.
( 100 x (132.3 – 131.76) = 54 USD
