Question for Fellow Fools
Everyone knows that the interest rates on treasuries are at impressive, historically low rates. As rates move closer to 0 it helps to define the risk on a short position while bringing about reasonable gains if rates move to more normal levels, especially longer out in the yield curve. The only problem is it is difficult to place a large bet on this event which will likely occur a fair distance in the future.
I had initiated a fairly small short position in TMF (a 3x long 20+ year treasury ETF) recently as it benefits from the normal decay of leveraged funds while giving me short exposure to treasuries. I was worried due to the small float on the fund and these worries came to pass as I was told I may have to sell the shares tomorrow because my broker no longer has the shares to lend.
Simply put I'm curious what other ideas you may have to benefit from the eventual rise in treasuries' yields.
