Experts agree that TBT is a good hedge against bonds and a bet that interest rates will rise. It is a leveraged ETF that holds a basket of 20-year bonds and is quite volatile. It benefits investors as interest rates go higher, making it a great portfolio hedge, especially for portfolios with a high percentage of equities. This is a good time to buy with minimal risk, but investors should be temperate in their position.

BUY

There is an ETF, TBT, that shorts US bonds. Very difficult for an individual to do on their own. Good idea to hold it as a hedge.

It's leveraged and holds a basket of 20-year bonds. It's the most liquid of its kind, but is quite volatile. Tend to peak at $32, though has broken that. He keeps buying it. It benefits you as interest rates go higher--a great hedge.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK

This is a bet against bonds and a bet that interest rates are going up. It is also  a great portfolio hedge especially with portfolios that have a high percentage of equities. There has been a long term decline in bond yields but a reversal is starting. However this doesn't mean that a return to previous highs is coming. It is a good time to buy now with minimal risk but be temperate in your position.

COMMENT

Inverse Bond ETF’s? The graph shows a higher low each time. With the expectation of rates going up, he expects it to move up. He would look at this on a month-to-month basis. Q2 is where he would be looking at acquiring bonds, if there are some hiccups and a deflation theme is starting again.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY

Shorting Bonds? He suggests an inverse ETF. It is probably a good trade, but not a huge trade. Unless you time it right it is tough.

E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick July 20/13. Down 16.67%.) Took some money out of this, but continues to trade it, as opposed to investing. At some point he expects interest rates are going to go up, and rather quickly.

TOP PICK

This ETF basically moves inversely to 20 year+ US bonds. This is double leveraged so it is one that you use as a trading vehicle. Amazed that they have not been able to lower interest rates lower than they have.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY

This is the ultra-short long treasuries, which is basically a levered product. With this one you are betting against the Fed which recently announced they are going to be buying 10-30 year bonds until the economy improves. You will have a buyer against you for a long time, however if the economy succeeds, the yield should increase. You have the time against you so you have to be careful. Wait until you see growth rates really pick up in manufacturing, consumers and housing.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

With this one, you are making a bet that US long bonds are going to decline. If you think interest rates are going up and bond prices are going to come down, this is a way to play it on a short-term basis and get 2 to 1 leverage. Every time you deal with a leveraged ETF, recognize that what they are doing is rolling over a series of futures contracts and there is a cost to doing that. That cost is implicit in the value of the product.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK

This is a bet against US bonds. He would think that in 3 to 6 months you will see it higher. Thinks the big drop in yield is over and this is a way to play it. This is high risk.

PAST TOP PICK

TOP PICK
Wants to try to protect himself from interest rates. It is the inverse of the 20-year bond in the US. If interest rates go up it goes up. He is long TBT, writing options on TBT to get the options premium. 2.9% option premium. Option expiration is this Saturday.
