    Bonds have nowhere to go but down. We will have tremendous inflation. And at close to zero interest they have got to drop from here.

    Don't normally trade them, so need advice from you bond experts. Best way to short them? Sell bond futures perhaps??? If so which, which ones are best.?
  2. What type of bonds are you talking about? Corp, muni's, Govies, etc...

    I personally think the spread between these bonds over treasuries make them a good buy. They are at record levels.

    I just bought some CSJ near the close. But you might want to short CSJ, LQD, TLT, MBB, etc.. These are all ETF's.

    Good Luck!

    How do you short the long Treasuries?

    Jim Rogers said he is doing this tonight.
