ETFs That Short US Treasury Bonds

January 24, 2012

The ongoing eurozone debt crisis has long-term U.S. Treasury bond ETFs losing their edge, and some firms are now recommending clients should short Treasurys, according to an article on ETF Trends.

Bonds prices have been too high while their yields are too low, they said. By shorting Treasurys during their decline, investors would profit from lower bond prices and an increase in yields.

The article highlights the following ETFs designed to rise as bond prices fall:

  • ProShares UltraShort 20+ Treasury ETF (NYSEArca: TBT)
  • ProShares UltraShort 7-10 Year Treasury (NYSEArca: PST)
  • ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (NYSEArca: TBF)
  • Direxion Daily 30-Year Treasury Bear 3X (NYSEArca: TMV)
