About CBOT 30 Year Treasury Bond Futures

U.S. Thirty-Year Treasury Bond futures have grown to become fundamental risk management tools for investors worldwide. In today's ever-changing global economy, holding fixed-income securities is tantamount to speculating on the future direction of interest rates. With the Treasury futures contracts at the Chicago Board of Trade, both institutional and individual investors can help control the risk in holding fixed-income securities and optimize their performance.

Interest rate futures were pioneered by the Chicago Board of Trade in 1975, in response to a growing need for tools that could protect against sharp and frequent swings in the cost of money. Over the past three decades, contract volume has grown to unprecedented levels, reflecting the growth of the underlying instruments and profound changes in the marketplace.
