Hedging short term bonds

  1. Now that rates are a bit higher, bonds are beginning to look like an investment to consider.

    Hedging a bond purchase with short the equivalent futures contract makes some sense to me (e. g. buying a 2-year note and shorting the ZT).

    But what futures contract could be used to hedge notes under six months? What would you use to hedge a six month, five month, or three month note?
  2. Overnight
