What are Treasuries?
Government treasuries – bonds issued by national governments – are considered among the safest long-term investments.
When an investor purchases a government bond they are, in effect, lending money to the government for a set number of years. In return they receive interest payments on the amount of the loan. The face value of the bond does not change.
Bonds do not have to be held until they mature. There is a thriving secondary market for government bonds.
There are a number of factors to consider when calculating the likely future value of a government bond, including political stability, the value of its currency and the risk of inflation.
Trading Bond CFDs
ECNOptions allows you to speculate on the shifting value of common government bond futures, such as the US 10-Year T-Note, through CFD trading.
A CFD (contract-for-difference) is a type of derivative that allows you to speculate on the price of an underlying asset – in this case a government bond future contract – without actually owning the asset itself.
The advantage of CFD trading is that you can trade long (buy) or short (sell) easily, trade with leverage in order to take a bigger position, all from a common online trading platform such as MetaTrader 5.
