Sailing through the IEF ex-dividend

IEF, Barclays 7-10 year Treasury note ETF, went ex-dividend April 1st with a declared dividend of $0.248 per share.  Somewhat surprisingly my IEF + DTYS hedge didn’t dip at all, closing at 146.11, the same close as the 31st.  I don’t see any reason why DTYS should go up on IEF’s ex-dividend date—and it is probably just a random thing. I’m not complaining.  During the day the hedge went as high as 146.24.    The average price of the IEF+DTYS hedge since DTYS started trading in August 2010 is 146.17.
