    Tried to find from IB AUs If one can purchase ASX listed AUs Govt and Corporate Bonds!
    Customer service says NO?
    Any body has any exp
    Also with an exchange traded bond held until expiry is the yield paid on face value? or closing price of Bond
    One AUS bond is trading around 105+ and the interests is 5.5% so if bought at 105.6 and held till expiry do we get paid 5.5% of 100 or whatever the closing price on the last day?
    Assume you can borrow at 3% and invest for 5,5% but then if purchase price is already 105.5 then what is the point!

    The point is that you won't be borrowing at lower rate than your govt That is a big point.

    true but with home equity I am able to borrow say at 2.75% and then can invest in this Govt Bond for 5.5 provided I use the NON Exchange traded version. but then I wonl;t be able to leverage
