same yield, seems to move up higher on up days?are they not the same?
One reason to buy tips over ipe - daily volume- tighter spread
They are virtually identical from what I can see. IPE has expenses of 0.19% vs. TIP's 0.2%, but that's hardly worth mentioning.The differences in performance over the last year are extremely minimal.http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?t=1y&s=TIP&l=on&z=l&q=l&c=ipeIPE seems to have slightly longer maturities so in theory you do have slightly more interest rate risk as seen in the profiles.http://finance.yahoo.com/q/pr?s=IPE+Profilehttp://finance.yahoo.com/q/pr?s=TIP+ProfileHowever, I wouldn't make too much out of that. They are almost identical funds.
