I'm pretty new to this whole bond thing... I read a few days ago that their is a lot of short interest in bond ETFs, mainly TLT. Can someone explain to me why that is? Are ETFs like TLT/TIP/IEF not good buys in a rising interest market? They still return better than most of my dividend-paying stocks. Just looking for something to buy into my Sharebuilder Roth.

Thanks for helping me see the light!
