    Dear All,


    A. May i know which are the most traded government bonds?

    I have the following list. Would someone be kind enough to fill in 7 to 10?
    1. US 2 yr T note
    2. US 5 yr T note
    3. Us 10 yr T note
    4. US T bond
    5. German Bund
    6. UK Gilt

    B. Investors/traders usually trade in the underlying or futures bonds?

    C. If i am not mistaken, the US 2,5,10 yr T note and T bonds are the only ones that are traded almost 24 hours, whereas others like German Bund and UK Gilt only trades during normal hours?

    Thank you.

    Many traders keep on the 10 year (ZN) since stock prices are influenced by iit. The Fed & central banks are active at times in it. It i the most liquid instrument on the planet.

    I like the Ultra bond (UB) as well with it's big price ranges and lower cost to trade in relation to its price ranges.
