It is traded by a wide range of users, including hedgers, speculators, bankers, bond dealers, mortgage servicer's and portfolio managers.
Underlying Unit One U.S. Treasury bond having a face value at maturity of $100,000.
Deliverable Grades U.S. Treasury bonds that, if callable, are not callable for at least 15 years from the first day of the delivery month or, if not callable, have a remaining term to maturity of at least 15 years from the first day of the delivery month. Note: Beginning with the March 2011 expiry, the deliverable grade for T-Bond futures will be bonds with remaining maturity of at least 15 years, but less than 25 years, from the first day of the delivery month. The invoice price equals the futures settlement price times a conversion factor, plus accrued interest. The conversion factor is the price of the delivered bond ($1 par value) to yield 6 percent.
