Overall stock trading is not about gaining profits from bond’s exchange rates, but in the amount of regular interests. Issuer through bonds engage to the capital market those investors, whom he would like to invest money in their securities. Then bond Publisher is obliged to pay his regular profits on agreed dates, and in the end to pay to investor his initial investment.
how it works
In their basic form, bonds and other credit instruments, such as notes, bills and commercial paper, are IOUs — basically, receipts for money borrowed from the investor. They bind the issuing organization to pay a fixed amount of interest periodically (usually semiannually) and repay the full face amount on the maturity date, which is set when the bond is issued.
Governments and corporations regularly finance their operations by issuing such credit instruments.
