WHAT IS BONDS TRADING?

Bond trading involves the dynamic exchange of debt securities, which are issued by corporations, governments, or other entities. By acquiring a bond, you essentially extend a loan to the issuer, entitling you to a predetermined interest payment over a specific duration. The issuer commits to reimbursing the principal (initial investment) to the bondholder upon the bond’s maturity.

Bond CFDs introduce a pathway to trading bond price fluctuations, allowing you to potentially reap gains from both ascending and descending bond prices. This becomes especially valuable in times of volatility or changing interest rate scenarios. Similar to other CFDs, bond CFDs offer the leverage advantage, enabling you to manage a larger position with a smaller capital investment.

FAQs

Before you start trading bonds, it's essential to understand the basics of bonds, such as how they work, the different types of bonds, and the risks involved. Then, open an Fortuno Live or Demo trading account, choose the bonds you want to trade and open your position.

The price of bonds can be affected by several factors, including:

  1. Interest rates: Interest rates have a significant impact on bond prices. When interest rates rise, the price of bonds decreases, and when interest rates fall, the price of bonds increases. This is because as interest rates rise, newer bonds with higher yields become available, making existing bonds with lower yields less attractive to investors.
  2. Credit risk: Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of the bond may default on its payments. Bonds with a higher credit risk, such as high-yield or junk bonds, typically have higher yields to compensate for the increased risk. If the perceived credit risk of a bond increases, its price may decrease, and vice versa.
  3. Inflation: Inflation can also impact bond prices. If the inflation rate is higher than the bond's yield, the purchasing power of the interest payments and principal repayment decreases, making the bond less attractive to investors. As a result, the price of the bond may decrease.
  4. Supply and demand: Bond prices can also be affected by supply and demand factors. If there is high demand for a particular bond, its price may increase. Conversely, if there is low demand, the price may decrease.
  5. Economic conditions: The overall state of the economy can also impact bond prices. For example, during periods of economic uncertainty, investors may flock to safer investments, such as government bonds, driving up their prices. Conversely, during periods of economic growth, investors may favor riskier investments, such as corporate bonds, causing their prices to increase.
  6. Political events: Political events such as elections, geopolitical tensions, and changes in government policies can also affect bond prices, particularly for government bonds. Political instability or uncertainty can lead to higher perceived risk, causing investors to demand higher yields, and lower bond prices.

Understanding the factors that affect bond prices can help investors make informed decisions and manage their bond portfolios more effectively.

There are several types of bond trading, including:

  1. Government bond trading: Government bonds are issued by national governments and are considered low-risk investments. Government bond trading involves buying and selling these bonds on the secondary market.
  2. Corporate bond trading: Corporate bonds are issued by companies to raise capital, and they typically offer higher yields than government bonds to compensate for the increased risk. Corporate bond trading involves buying and selling these bonds on the secondary market.
  3. Municipal bond trading: Municipal bonds are issued by state and local governments to fund public projects such as schools, highways, and hospitals. Municipal bond trading involves buying and selling these bonds on the secondary market.
  4. High-yield bond trading: High-yield or junk bonds are issued by companies with lower credit ratings, and they offer higher yields than investment-grade bonds to compensate for the increased risk. High-yield bond trading involves buying and selling these bonds on the secondary market.
  5. Bond futures trading: Bond futures are financial contracts that allow investors to buy or sell a specific bond at a future date at a predetermined price. Bond futures trading involves buying and selling these contracts on futures exchanges.
  6. Bond options trading: Bond options are financial contracts that give investors the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a bond at a specific price before a specific date. Bond options trading involves buying and selling these contracts on options exchanges.
