did anybody notice no monthly dividend was paid at the end of December? did I miss any news... or just my brokerage issue...
Barclays announced a 0.00 monthly dividend for TIP. It happens occasionally -- in 2008-2009, the dividend was zero for several months in a row.
Looks like no dividend for January '12 either

I don't know the answer to your question. But I do know you can trade TIP along with other 25 ETFs at Fdelty Investment without paying any commisson.Stop making your broker rich.
