How to Invest in Bonds: General Information

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Clients and Partners,

In this overview, we will discuss such a popular investment instrument as bonds. Investors use bonds for preserving and increasing their capital.

What are bonds?



A bond is a debt security with fixed revenue, used by the state or companies for attracting money by borrowing it from investors (funds, companies, or individuals). Bonds are often issued for raising money for certain projects. In essence, a bond is a credit agreement for a certain period with a fixed size of interest.

Buying bonds, an investor provides the issuer of the bonds with a certain sum of money that the company will later use. In exchange, the issuer will pay off a certain interest on this sum during a set period, and when it is over, will pay back the whole sum. Unlike a shareholder, a bondholder normally has no share in the company, no right to participate in shareholders’ voting, or receive dividends.

Some bonds are rated by agencies, such as Moody’s, Standard & Poor's, to help investors make up their minds about their quality. Such ratings are used for estimating the probability of paying back the borrowed sum. Normally, ratings of bonds are of two types: credit rating (trustworthiness) and profitability rating.

Main characteristics of bonds

The main characteristics of bonds are:
  • The Time of Maturity: it is the date when the issuer must pay back the borrowed sum. The term may vary from one to thirty years.
  • Principal, or Face Value is the sum that will be paid to the investor before the Time of Maturity. It can be paid in parts.
  • Coupon is the revenue that investors receive. It may be fixed or floating. Usually, the interest is paid by a schedule.

What types of bonds are there?



Corporate bonds are debt instruments issued by a company for attracting capital for development, research, or the introduction of inventions. The interest received from corporate bonds is taxable. Simultaneously, the interest on corporate bonds is usually higher than on municipal or state bonds.

Municipal (local) bonds are issued by cities, towns, regions, etc. to gather money for public projects, such as the construction of schools, hospitals, roads, etc. Unlike corporate bonds, the interest on local bonds is non-taxable.

State (treasury) bonds are issued by the government of a country. As long as they are fully secured by the government, they are considered the most trustworthy bonds. However, the interest on state bonds is much lower than on corporate ones.

The MFI: Peculiarities and Trading Strategies

Author: Maks Artemov



Dear Clients and Partners,

Today, we will get acquainted with the MFI (Market Facilitation Index). It was developed by an experienced trader Bill Williams and described in his book “The Trading Chaos”.

The author aimed at research and quality analysis of the ratio between trade volumes and the price of the asset. He assumed that the trade volume or turnover initiated growth. The larger the volume of the asset, the brighter the price growth.

Placement and appearance

In MT4, you can find the MFI in Indicators – Bill Williams. The indicator is displayed in a separate window under the price chart and looks like a histogram made of bars of four different colors. The color and width of the bars are customizable. By default, the colors are as follows:
  • MFI upwards, volume up – Lime
  • MFI downwards, volume down – SaddleBrown
  • MFI upwards, volume down – Blue
  • MFI downwards, volume up
Usually, it is up to the trader whether to place highs and lows – normally, they are not used in trading by the MFI. The indicator has no other settings.



What does the MFI show?

The indicator provides the following information:
  • The green bar means that the number of market operations increases and the trend is getting stronger. The current impulse may continue because new players come to the market and make a lot of operations. This signal is not meant for opening positions because the impulse emerged much earlier, and the price has already covered a long distance. But if the trader already has an open position, the growth of the green bar will mean they were right.
  • The brown bar means that volatility and liquidity are falling because market players are losing interest. Usually, such a bar precedes a flat, and the probability of a reversal is almost null. After the flat, the price may proceed in either direction with equal probability.
  • The blue bar indicates that the impulse is currently developing not because some new players have entered the market but because either buyers or sellers are leaving it. They have lost interest in the asset, and the situation is dubious.
  • The Pink bar shows that both bulls and bears are active. This bar promises a reversal and is most preferable for traders.
Though the MFI gives certain information to the trader, the author advises against trading by this indicator only. It should be used alongside other indicators or some trading strategy.
