Bond (fixed income investment) is a simple loan, a trader makes to a government, a government agency, or a corporation to finance projects and other needs. The bond issuer will pay a defined interest rate on the investment for the duration of the bond, and then give the original sum back at the end of the loan’s term.
As well as buying bonds during auspicious periods, traders can use financial derivatives to speculate on a bond’s market price.
The bond market is by far the largest securities market in the world, providing investors with virtually limitless investment options.
Trading bonds happens thousands of times a day and is an important part of global economic markets. The bond market is much bigger than the stock market and central banks conduct monetary policy in the bond markets. When buyers and sellers are trading their bonds, they dictate the yields of the various types of bonds they are trading. This in turn sets the price of credit in the economy.
