    are you guys invested for the right reason?

    What are treasuries but a promise to receive future dollars for dollars lent now. So if you short treasuries you are borrowing dollars now and promising to pay dollars in the future. By definition you are profiting if the $ falls because the cost of future dollars is much lower. A $ collapse is bullish for tbt.
