How can You trade bonds with GBE brokers? 

Unlike the traditional purchase of paper bonds – on the CFD market You can benefit from increasing and decreasing prices of bonds. In this way You do not need 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 purchasing the CFD You only have rights on the difference between purchase price and selling price. You do not have any right on the actual bond.

Let’s take a look at the following hypothetical example of trading an bond on CFD*:

If You believe that the value of the Euro Bund Futures (FGBL.f) will increase, You are going to buy (long) 1 CFD Euro Bund at the current market rate which we will assume is 160 EUR. Let’s assume that the price of the Euro Bund and the value of the CFD increases to 165 EUR. If You close your long position of the Euro Bund You purchased before at 160 EUR the difference of 5 points will result in 500 EUR to be Your profit. And vice versa.
