Consequently, under the currently weak economy, a Fed tightening would cause long-duration securities, like 30-year Treasuries, to rally and yields to fall.
ETF investors now have a chance to play on Gundlach’s investment outlook through the recently launched SPDR DoubleLine Total Return Tactical ETF (NYSEArca: TOTL). The actively managed TOTL represents an ETF adaptation of DoubleLine’s flagship Total Return Bond Fund.
However, potential investors should be aware that TOTL currently overweights mortgage-backed securities at 55.7% of the portfolio’s holdings and Treasuries only make up 5.2% of the ETF’s underlying components. Since TOTL is an actively managed ETF, Gundlach can shift allocations down the line.
More aggressive traders can consider leveraged options to play a bounce in Treasuries, such as the ProShares Ultra 20+ Year Treasury (NYSEArca: UBT) and Direxion Daily 20+ Year Treasury Bull 3x Shares ETF (NYSEArca: TMF). However, potential investors should be aware that these types of leveraged investments come with greater risks and should be closely monitored.
