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.

Just did an issue, 6.75%- Oct/20. Rated high-yield. Lending to gold producers, you want to make sure they have diversified mines as well as being low cost producers. This company could eventually get taken over.
