TLT is 20 Year Treasuries. That's way too long a maturity for current conditions--unless you plan to hold it for 20 years. When interest rates finally start to rise, TLT will get hammered.that was my first thought ..2d thought was How much could rates rise, how much 'hammering'?then noticed your '20% loss' ..on rates creeping up recently??(that would bode a lot of hammering)[ disclaimer: my response to puny CDs has been (the equally(?) risky) to look for hi-yield Utility stocks so far, hammered on one, nice gains on the others ]
