Why would you want to pay exchange commissions when you can buy the Vanguard bond funds, short term, or whathaveyou without paying a commission?
Why not just put the short term money in a money market? Short term bonds aren't going to do that much better.
I believe there is no such thing as an exchange-traded bond index because there is no need for one.
Best wishes, Chris
