Other costs

Saxo Markets allows a percentage of the investment in certain bonds to be used as collateral for margin trading activities.

The collateral value of a bond position depends on the rating of the individual bond, as outlined below:

Rating definition*Collateral percentage
Highest Rating (AAA)92%
Very High Quality (AA)90%
High Quality (A)80%

 

* as rated internally by Saxo Group

Example: 80% of the market value of a bond position with an A rating can be used as collateral (instead of cash) to trade margin products such as Forex, CFDs or Futures and Options.

Please note that Saxo Markets reserves the right to decrease or remove the use of bond positions as collateral.

For further guidance or to request the rating and collateral treatment of a specific or potential bond position, please contact your Account Manager.

Saxo supports 2,500+ bonds offline, so there is a good chance that your preferred bond can be traded offline from our bond desk, even if unavailable through the platform. Please contact Saxo to enquire about the possibility of trading the specific bond offline. If so, it will be manually traded, but will still appear in the account summary of your account just like any other position.

Bonds have different minimum trading sizes which can be as high as 50k, 100k or 200k in the relevant currency. You can see the minimum trading sizes and increment on each bond under account > Trading conditions as well as on the trade ticket. However, there are bonds which trade in lower sizes, which may also be available. A minimum limit of €10k or $10k applies on all online bonds.

Bonds can be traded online 24/5 if the relevant underlying bond market is open. Trading hours will be limited to the daylight hours where liquidity in the relevant underlying bond market is best (i.e. European government bonds are open for trading in European hours).

A wide range of the most active and liquid government and corporate bonds in Europe, US, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, as well as a limited number of Latin American bonds - in total more than 4,500 bonds - are available for online bond trading.
