Mini Bond-IB

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by stevene9, May 6, 2002.

  1. Does anyone know what IB's symbol is for the bond. I know the future is YH, buy can we get the cash as an index.
  2. bonds are traded interbank.
    there is no real cash index, however, the
    30yr yield ($TYX/QCharts) represents the major market.

    There are three 30 Year US Bond futures: full-size pit traded, full-size A/C/E and a Mini futures traded on A/C/E. Symbols are usually USD, US and XB, but some firms differ.

  4. Sorry, I just realized I didn't answer your question. Sasch is right, there is no real symbol for cash bonds since they are traded interbank.
