As a shaky bond market (TLT -0.8%) helps snuff out an early rally for stocks, Bill Gross reminds the Fed isn't hiking rates for years, and it makes intermediate-term Treasurys a buy at yields greater than 2%. The 10-year yield is up 3 bps to 2.22%. Treasury ETFs (long and short) in the 7-10 year range: IEF, PST, ITE, TENZ, TYNS, UST, VGIT, TBX, GVI.

    This back up in yields is likely temporary. Add to quality intermediate bond funds.

    They still say a world depression is on the way. Bond yields should stay low for a couple more years.

    I am debating adding more shares of GVI though I think we may see slightly more downside soon.

    10 Year is still below the Mar 2012 peak @2.40. Midpoint of 12 month range of 1.38 - 2.30 is 1.84. If Gross is right, yield is ahead of itself therefore 2% plus is a good buy.
