On the CFD market you can benefit from increasing and decreasing prices of bonds. The price of a CFD generally shows the price of the underlying asset. The low initial investment (Margin) and the leverage effect are additional CFD characteristics. An example for this asset class is the German Bund. If you bet that the value of Bund will increase, you are going to buy (long) 1 CFD Euro Bund at the current market rate (160 EUR). The price of the bund and the value of the CFD increases to 165 EUR. You sell (short) at 165 EUR. The difference of 5 EUR is your profit. If German Bund drops to 155 EUR, you lost 5 EUR. With purchasing the CFD you solely have rights on the difference between purchase price and selling price. You do not have any right on e.g. delivery of the underlying asset.
