Interest rate Futures are contracts that grant traders exposure to a wide range of benchmark financial products. With these contracts the trader agrees on the buying or selling of products such as U.S. Treasury bonds at a predetermined price and date.
Interest rate trading is conducted via the buying and selling of bond and yield products. When a trader thinks interest rates set by a central bank will move higher, they can buy yields and sell bonds, and when they predict the opposite, they can sell yield products and buy bond products.
