Which bond Market to Follow?

Hi All,

I just wondered if someone who follows bonds could suggest which chart to follow for the US markets? I am after one that would be ideal for a trader to follow to keep an eye on the overall US bond market.

I see that the top two seem to be used often?

ZB (30 year treasury bond futures)

TLT (20+ year treasury bond ETF)

AGG (iShares Barclays Capital Aggregate Bond Index ETF)

LQD (iBoxx $ Liquid Investment Grade Bond Index ETF)

Many thanks!

It used to be the 30-year was the main "bond market" indicator. That shifted to the 10 year a while back, however.
