This time is different for Treasurys (TLT, TBT)? "The Fed has been very transparent and their transparency should help offset the risks that were experienced in 1994," says JPMorgan's head of rates Edward Fitzpatrick. He's joined in this opinion by others who ought to know better, including Templeton's Michael Materasso and Vanguard's Gemma Wright-Casparius, all of whom attribute the 1994 rout to communication, not a crazed buildup in leverage.

    The shares of TBT have a spread-value of ca 58-65 :
    31-11-2012 : 62,50
    01-01-2013 : 65,05
    28-03-2013 : 65,71
    02-05-2013 : 58,58
    08-05-2013 : 61.98
    This value is depended of the interest kept bij the FED and are these days very low. However if this rent is increased (because of higher inflation) TBT price wil go up because people wil sell their bonds.
