Seven ETFs To Play Deflation

As for interest-paying ETFs, one could consider the following:
  • iShares Barclays 1-3 Yr Treasury Bond(SHY), which yields 1.23% and primarily holds bonds with a AAA rating
  • Vanguard Short-Term Bond ETF(BSV), which yields 2.39% and allocates nearly 76% of its assets to bonds with a AAA rating, giving investors a little more return for risk
  • iShares Barclays 20+ Treas Bond(TLT), which boasts a yield of 3.75% and primarily holds bonds with a AAA rating. This is more of a long-term play on deflation, but generates a healthy stream of income.
