What are bonds?

Bonds are financial instruments that enable governments and corporates to raise capital. Investors will loan money to the bond-issuer and, in return, receive a series of interest payments at specified dates. At maturity, the bond-issuer will repay the original sum lent – known as the bond’s ‘principal’.

Bonds can be bought and sold on the secondary market like other financial securities – meaning that their prices fluctuate. High interest rates, for example, tend to make bonds less attractive by providing other opportunities to earn returns with low risk. For this reason, interest rates and bond prices tend to have an inverse relationship.

How to trade bonds

With us, you´ll trade on changes in bond prices using CFDs - a type of leveraged derivative. This means that, when trading, you´ll never take ownership of an actual bond. Instead, you´ll take a position on the bond futures market either rising in value or falling.

Your profit or loss will depend on whether you correctly predicted the direction of movement, how much the market has moved, and the size of your position.

But, please remember that all trading incurs significant risk. This is only amplified when trading on leverage. Learn more about how to manage your risk.

Bond trading costs

  • CFD trading costs
Margin* Minimum margin requirement of 20%
Spread From 1 point

*Leverage can magnify both your profits and losses as they’ll be based on the full exposure of the trade, not just the margin required to open it. This means losses as well as profits could far outweigh your margin, so always ensure you’re trading within your means.
