A bond CFD is a form of financial derivative trading. When you trade a bond, you are taking a position on the price of the underlying instrument and not purchasing the instrument itself. This means that if you feel the bond you are trading will go up in value, you would take a long position and if you feel the value of the bond would fall, you would take a short position.
What is a bond?
A bond is a loan or purchase that the bond holder makes to the issuer. Bonds can be issued by governments, corporations or bodies that are looking to raise capital. When you buy a bond, you are effectively giving the issuer a loan in return for a bond. The issuer promises to pay you interest periodically and to return the principal amount when the bond matures.

Pricing and liquidity providers
Our pricing engine aggregates live prices, in real time, from our liquidity providers and calculates a mid-point. A custom-built pricing algorithm automatically calculates the spread symmetrically around the mid-point for each tradable instrument on our trading platform. This mid-point fluctuates throughout the day as market prices change.
Our award-winning trading platform is engineered for reliability and speed. This is especially important during periods of high volatility, when prices can move rapidly.
Costs of trading
Fairness and transparency are at the heart of everything we do. We are upfront about our charges and fees, so you always know exactly how much you are paying when you trade with us. Learn about our costs for depositing and withdrawing funds, bank wire transfer, spreads, inactivity fees and more.
