Hi there

I was wondering if someone could explain to me what the bund, bobl and schatz are, and how they might be traded? I've always assumed they're linked to fixed income products such as bonds and STIR's, but was looking for clarification. Thanks.

I don't want to get told off for grave-digging or anything, but I found this thread by a google search...

As far as I understand, the bund refers to the German government 10Y bond, and then the other names like bobl and Schatz are for the 2Y, 5Y, 30Y etc...
