ASIC regulated Retail FX broker IC Markets has announced that it has added a range of Bond CFDs to its growing multi-asset offering.
The addition of these fixed income products comes at a time when interest rates are normalising across the world’s major economies following years of record lows, providing IC Markets clients with new trading opportunities from some of the most traded Bond markets.
Bonds are popular instruments that many traders use to express their views on expected changes in long-term interest rates. In particular, the IC Markets Bonds CFDs are based off highly rated governments from around the world, including the United States, Japan and Europe. Designed for retail traders, the Bond products are offered as CFDs and can be traded long or short with flexible lot sizes starting from $1 per point.
IC Markets Director Angus Walker added:
The addition of Bonds CFDs comes at an important time in financial markets. We’re late in the cycle for one of the longest running stock bull markets in history and as central banks are reducing the size of their balance sheets, Bonds CFDs are a great way for our clients to trade these emerging themes.
IC Markets has been very active lately in adding trading products and tools for its clients. We recently reported that IC Markets expanded its Cryptocurrency offering adding Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Dash Coin and Litecoin. The company announced plans to add FX auto trading system EA Lab for MT4 from Trade View Investments, and launched Autochartist to their clients through MT4, MT5 and cTrader.
