​What are bond futures and options?

Bond futures and options are exactly the same as any other futures contract or option, with one obvious difference: these derivatives are offered over bonds rather than the more popular stocks or indices. Bonds are debt instruments issued by large corporates and governments and are generally not traded by private investors or traders, but rather used by large institutional investors.
