What is Bonds trading?

The Fixed Income asset class consists of different debt instruments, with the most popular and traded type of Fixed Income security being government bonds. Since government bonds are typically tied to floating interest rates, you are trading future interest rate expectations for that country. This makes government bonds one of the purest ways to speculate on the health of an economy, risk on/off, reserve bank quantitative easing programs, and so on.

Our government bond CFDs are based on the futures markets for those products. This gives you the ability to speculate purely on the price of the bond without actually owning it. This also means there is no interest debited or credited, you only have to worry about the price of the bond and whether you go long or short.

How does Bond trading work?

When you trade government bonds, you’re taking a view on the interest rate expectations for that country. Interest rates and bond prices move in an inverse fashion, this means bonds rally when yields drop, and vice versa. As an example, if a central bank increases interest rates, bond prices will decline and yields will increase.

Global Prime How it Works

The gross profit on your rate is calculated as follows:

Opening Price

1.00 x 100 x 132.473 = 13,247.30 USD

Required Margin

1.00 x 100 x 132.473 x 1% = 132.473 USD

Closing Price

1.00 x 100 x 133.00 = 13,300 USD

Gross Profit on Trade USD

$52.70 USD

Opening the position

The price of the 10 Year Treasury Bond (UST10Y) is 132.45 bid /132.473 ask. You would like to buy 1 standard lot (100 contract size) at 132.473 ask.

You have 5,000 USD balance and the leverage is 1:100

Closing the position

One day later, the price of UST10Y has risen to 133.00 bid/133.023 ask. Since you are in profit, you would like to close your position by selling 1 standard lot (MT4 1.00) at 133.00 bid.
