ProShares UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury ETF (TBT) - With the Treasury having to raise historic amounts of capital through note sales, many investors believe long-dated Treasury yields will go higher and the bonds will collapse.

TBT rises at twice the rate that long-dated Treasuries fall. From a technical standpoint, it appears TBT has broken out above $53.50 and has "filled the gap."

For those who believe Treasury rates will continue to rise, TBT is an excellent way to play this move.
