Bonds, or debt obligations, have been around since ancient Mesopotamia. By issuing and selling bonds a company or a government borrows money from an investor with the promise to pay it back with regular interest payments. The price of a bond depends on the likelihood of it being paid back. Bonds are often called fixed-income securities. Thus an investor profits from the regular interest payments of the bond and not from the price fluctuations in the bond’s value.
Bonds trading explained
The easiest way to explain bonds is to think of them as loans. A bond issuer borrows money and promises to return the entire loaned sum when the bond hits its maturity date. As a compensation, the bond issuer pays a fixed interest to the creditor at predetermined intervals. If the company goes bankrupt, you have the right to be the first in line to receive the total amount you loaned.
