How can You trade bonds with MasterECN?
Unlike the traditional buy of paper bonds on the CFD(Contract For Difference) market You can take profit from increasing and decreasing prices of bonds. In this method You do not require to collect paper documentation or having to find parties to buy and collect these from You when it comes time to sell. It is good to have in mind that with buying the CFD(Contract For Difference) You only have rights on the difference between purchasing price and selling price. You do not have any right on the real bond.
Let’s take a look at hypothetical example of trading a bond on Contract for Difference*:
If You believe that the value of the Euro Bund Futures will increase, You are going to purchase 1 CFD Euro Bund at the market rate which we will suppose is 150 EUR. Let’s suppose that the price of the Euro Bund and the value of the CFD increase to 155 EUR. If You close your position of the Euro Bund You purchased before at 150 EUR the difference of 4 points will result in 400 EUR to be Your profit. And opposite.
