A mutual fund is generally priced at the end of the trading day with a net asset value (NAV), that is the per-share value of the assets it holds. A short term treasury fund holds obligations of the US Treasury that are sensitive to interest rate changes. Generally, as the relevant interest rate goes up, the value of the obligation goes down, and vice versa. When the value of the investments held in a mutual fund goes down, the price of the fund goes down, and vice versa.
