For much of 2018, the growth-fueled bull run has seen U.S. equities garner much of the attention compared to bonds--their less exciting capital markets brethren. After washing investors through October's volatility machine, the pattern continues to persist in the capital markets as the Dow Jones Industrial Average began Monday with a 600-point loss as it struggles to recover on Tuesday--a sign that investors should give bonds a closer look--fixed-income exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in particular. As such, traders looking to juice returns on leveraged plays in the Treasury debt space can look to ETFs like the Direxion Daily 7-10 Yr Treasury Bull 3X ETF (TYD) and Direxion Daily 7-10 Yr Treasury Bear 3X ETF (TYO) .

You won’t find many people willing to argue that the fixed income market has been especially exciting over the past decade, even with the 10-year bond yield’s recent rise above 3 percent for the first time since 2014. You might even ask “Who cares about the bond market with cryptocurrencies, oil on a tear, and the equities market still smoldering? Well, now might be exactly the time to pay attention to that yield, and funds that have exposure (or inverse) to bonds, like Direxion’s Daily 7-10 Year Treasury Bull (NYSE: TYD) and Bear (NYSE: TYO) 3X Shares ETFs or the Daily 20+ Year Treasury Bull (NYSE: TMF) and Bear (NYSE: TMV) 3X Shares ETFs.

Economists continue to predict higher inflation and short-term interest rate hikes throughout 2018 and 2019.
