Bonds are an asset which pay regular interest and are issued to raise funds from investors.Both business and government bonds are rated by licenced credit-rating agencies. Lower rated bonds pay higher interests and higher rated bonds pay lower interest. Bonds are a good addition to any portfolio due to their stability and fixed interest.When other assets have high volatility bonds can sometimes make significant gains as a ‘safe haven’investment. Buying bonds is for you if you have volatile assets in your portfolio or you prefer a more dependable income nearing important milestones such as your retirement or child’s further education.
Though some investors find that bonds are suitable for defensive and/or conservative portfolios only, leveraged bonds can make this statement not so monosemantic. Because “when leverage works, it magnifies your gains”.

Finally, CFDs are exempt from stamp duty and transaction costs are deductible, saving you large amounts if when trading high volume frequently.

Futures is a derivative financial instrument, a contract to buy or sell the underlying asset on a certain date in the future, but at the current market price. Futures attract investors with their transparency, liquidity, low risks of a transaction and the accuracy of tracking the underlying asset
Futures option has all the features of an ordinary option contract, except the asset is secured by a futures contract. The date of execution in this case should occur shortly after the date of delivery under this option contract. The buyer pays the seller a premium guaranteed by the stock exchange clearing house. Options on futures contracts are European-type options and are executed only on the expiration date specified in the contract.

Exotic FX Options
The binary option, also called the “all or nothing” is an option with a fixed profit. It is an exotic transaction, which at a specified time and depending on the fulfillment of the stipulated condition either provides a fixed amount of income (premium) or does not bring anything. Since the option is bought in advance at a fixed price, the grand total is either positive (in the amount of the difference between the premium and the price of the option) or negative (by the value of the option). As a rule, the size (modulus) of a positive result is less than negative. This type of contracts has no options with maturities less than a day.
