So that is the current list we have as of now. However, be sure to check back often as I will update this list as needed. If new funds are approved I will ad them to this list, or if any stop trading, I will remove them from this list. Two examples of funds that are now closed are FIVZ and TENZ.

And while some of these funds may be attractive, be sure to conduct thorough research before making any trades. Check the history of the ETF, understand the risks, watch the fund in action and see how it reacts to different market conditions. Also, take a look at what is in  the funds as many ETFs may contain derivatives such as futures and options. And if you have any questions or concerns, be sure to consult a financial professional, such as a broker or advisor.

And for those of you who are unfamiliar with Treasury Bond ETFs, they are issued and backed by the US Government and tend to have less risk than corporate bonds. They have durations of over 10 years, make semi-annual interest payments, and are taxed on the federal level. They are initially bought through an auction and prices can range from $1,000 to $5,000,000.
