Can Bonds be used as collateral for margin trading?

Saxo Capital Markets allows Bonds to be used as collateral for margin trading (with Forex, CFDs, Futures or Contract Options). The collateral value available for margin trading depends on the rating of the bond, as outlined below:
 

Definition
​Margin Collateral
​Highest Rating (AAA)
​92%
​Very High Quality (AA)
​90%
​High Quality (A)

Lower rated bonds will not be accepted as collateral for margin trading.

If you are unsure about the collateral value for a specific bond position, please contact your account executive.
