Treasury ETF Surges, Assets Follow: (TLT)

FYI: Betting on duration has been a phenomenal play for fixed income ETF investors.

The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)—the largest ETF to invest in U.S. Treasuries with remaining maturities of 20 years or more—has raced higher in the past year, tallying gains of 30% in 12 months.

Compare that run with that of the S&P 500’s as measured by the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), which is up only 3% in the same period.
