Bonds: Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS)

Downloads Market yields on Treasury inflation protected securities, or TIPS, adjusted to constant maturities. The data comes from the U.S Federal Reserve website and is updated on a daily-basis.

The item adds and fills 4 symbols: TIPS yields at 5-year constant maturity, TIPS yields at 7-year constant maturity, TIPS yields at 10-year constant maturity and TIPS yields at 20-year constant maturity.

TIPS or Treasury inflation protected securities are bonds issued by governments. They are used by investors to protect them from the negative effect of inflation on their investments. Like other Treasuries and Bonds, TIPS, which are also called treasury inflation-indexed securities, have a principal amount and an interest rate. The principal is adjusted by changes in the Consumer Price Index or CPI. A rise in inflation is compensated by an increase in the underlying principal and the coupon payments, while a drop in the CPI (disinflation) results in a decrease in the principal and the coupon payments.

The market expectations of the future inflation (CPI) could be measured by the TIPS Spread. This spread measures the difference between the yield of a US Treasury and the yield of TIPS. Both securities must have the same maturity date. The higher the spread is, the higher increases in inflation (CPI) investors are expecting. When the spread between the two securities narrow, this tells us that investors are expecting little inflation in the future (depending on the maturity used for comparing treasuries).

Because Treasury Inflation Protected Securities guarantees the growth of your purchasing power, investing in TIPS offer a low return. TIPS bonds can be traded by directly buying US inflation-indexed treasuries or by purchasing ETFs and mutual funds that invests in these types of securities.
