    Out at $84.06

    If this fund holds nothing but short term gov't paper, when rates begin to rise, it will consistently be buying new, higher yielding paper, while letting its holdings mature at par. I'm not sure why there's any volatility at all (besides dividend payouts) since ETF's are open ended, as opposed to a closed-end fund whose price fluctuates based on supply and demand for the shares. If I am wrong about any of this, please tell me/explain my error. thanx.
