Bond Futures are exchange-traded instruments that have an underlying basket of bonds. The contracts are generally executed on government bonds and are commonly referred to as Treasury Bond Futures in the U.S. The basket is selected based on rules about remaining maturity, original maturity, and issue size published by the trading exchange. These are highly liquid instruments used for hedging, directional trading, and arbitrage.
