NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The fixed income market is clearly in a state of flux and confusion.The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note has gone up meaningfully in the last few weeks but still well below historical norms. Investors interested in still maintaining a diversified asset allocation need fixed-income exposure but a popular fund like the iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) will be in for more losses if rates continue to go up.
