The TLT is an ETF that holds bonds with 20+ years to maturity, TLT is—by design—very sensitive to long-term interest-rate movements. TLT has seen 450Mil in creations in the past 10 days.
ETF Newz Says:
This is a bet that interest rates will be dropping. The TLT is up about 2% over the past week while the inverese, the (TBF) ProShares Short 20+ YEAR Treasury has fallen about 2%. Slowing growth and the stress on the economic market from the Russia/Ukraine conflict are key drivers here. This is also a bet that the Fed will not be moving their interest rate up at the same pace that was expected.
