Ultra Short 20+ Yr Treasury ETF. Warning flag for him is that this is an ultra at 2X or 3X. Actual underlying bond may have a certain price movement that will not be correlated at all to what the ETF does. Do not get involved with doubles or triples.

Shorting bonds? More difficult and very limited compared to typical stock trades and margin requirements are usually such that it doesn't make a lot of sense. ETF’s would be the space to do this. Thinks yields are going higher and the best bang for your buck in terms of bond prices falling is at the long end. Yields should go higher in the US than in Canada. This ETF is probably the easiest way to do it.

ProShares Ultra Short 20+ yr Treasury ETF. In 3 years interest rates will be dramatically higher in the US. Also, the US$ is dead. This is a good way of betting against that.

Governments everywhere, certainly in North America, are expensive. 10 years at around 3.26%/3.29% and are probably going to 4% by the end of the year. That's getting back to where they should be in a normal world.

ProShare Ultra Short 7-10 yr. (PST-N) vs. ProShare Ultra Short 20+ yr. (TBT-N). You really have to watch carefully for a good spot to step in. Government stimulus will ultimately result in inflation. Inflation means lower bond prices. Government is going to have to step into the market and float a whole bunch of bonds and we don't know if there is an appetite out there for this.

Allows you to go Short the long treasury. He wants rates to go back up at some point. Because he thinks they will, this thing is going to be a winning trade. The risk is that the US government starts buying long bond as part of its recovery. If so, he'll say OOPS it was a bad idea.

Double leveraged reverse ETF. Word of caution, the company sponsoring this is Lehman Brothers.
