Treasury ETFs Still Have a Place in a Diversified Portfolio | Page 2 of 2 | ETF Trends

The lingering uncertainty has kept pressure on yields and propped up bond prices. Specifically, yields on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes are hovering around 2.7%, or its lowest level in almost a year.

If you are still worried about any further risks ahead, one may look to a Treasury bond ETF to provide a stabilizing factor for a diversified investment portfolio. For example, the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ: IEF) and iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ: TLT) offer exposure to intermediate- and long-term Treasuries.

Alternatively, those who are more wary of interest rate risks can move down the yield curve and pick out short-term Treasury exposures through ETFs options like the iShares Short Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ: SHV) and iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SHY).
