About Bonds

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 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 your trading will increase in value, you would take a long position and if you feel the value of the bond would decrease, you would take a short position.
