The U.S.-China trade war continues to move the capital markets as news flip flops on a trade deal being close to done and then later on, both sides being world apart from an ironclad deal. For traders, however, this creates an environment of volatility that can not only move equities, but also Treasury notes via these four Direxion Investments ETFs.

Wednesday’s trading session saw benchmark Treasury yields decline as trade war uncertainty brought back more risk-off maneuvers from investors. As such, Treasury prices went higher, which appeased the bond bulls.

“Treasury yields fell on Wednesday after rekindled trade uncertainty fueled investor demand for safer assets like U.S. debt,” a CNBC report noted. “The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 1.8843%, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower at around 2.36%.”

Of course, should positive news hit the markets on a trade deal, it can swing the other way on Treasurys. As such, here are four ETFs to trade Treasurys:
