Thanks all,
Bond funds are a bit more complicated than my simplistic view.
I checked Spartan Intermediate Treasury Bond Index Fund against the 10 year treasury interest and it moved as it was supposed to.
The thing I was after was that I wanted my Bond funds to be moving in a different direction from the market, and the total bond market fund did not reduce any risk. If I had the Treasury bond index it would have reduced it a bit.
Thanks again.
