Rydex offers retail investors a means to short the long bond through RYJUX. ($25k min.) Their competitors, at www.profunds.com , just rolled out RRPIX, which is a 125% leveraged version. ($15k min.)

If any of those concepts are unfamilar to you, you likely have no business using either of the products. But more experienced investors *might* consider hedging or speculating with them as we go forward toward the certainty of Fed hikes.

Disclaimer: I'm currently long neither, which is going to change, which is NOT investment advice. Of two shops, I prefer ProFunds, which is NOT a recomendation, just a reflection of my experience with them. Your milage may vary, etc.
