Tickmill, a comprehensive provider of foreign exchange and contracts-for-difference, today added 4 new CFDs on German Government Bonds to the existing range of asset classes available to trade. The new products are available on the company’s platform as a new asset class, and they are: EURO-BOBL, EURO-BUND, EURO-BUXL and EURO-SCHATZ bonds.
The new offering will enable clients to invest directly in European debt with favorable terms compared to those offered on the futures markets. These terms include much lower spreads (starts from 18 pts), higher leverage (up to 1:100), lower minimum trade sizes and tick values as well as no financing costs, exchange fees or minimum commissions.
CFDs on government bonds also create the conditions for retail investors to trade the underlying asset with much better control of their exposure to risk margin.

The company noted in its statement: “As debt securities, bonds can provide an excellent way to diversify your trading portfolio and hedge against risk. Take advantage of the inverse relationship between long-term interest rates and bond prices, by taking a position on future changes in interest rates while leveraging the stability of government bonds.”
Earlier in May, Finance Magnates reported on the global ECN broker when it released a new Korean language website to support an increasing client base and demand for online trading services in the Korean peninsula.
The launch of the Korean website followed Tickmill’s expansion into the institutional sector with the recent launch of Tickmill Prime which caters to brokers, banks, hedge funds, money managers and professional traders.
Tickmill now has a total of 9 languages with more in the pipeline, as the company strives to meet the demands of the competitive European, MENA and Asian markets.
