    Last Auction not a record low yield

    "I was on vacation last week and away from computers and the Internet (mostly), so I didn’t get a chance to write about Wednesday’s reissue auction of CUSIP 912828TE0, effectively creating a 9-year 8-month TIPS.
    Demand for this issue was relatively weak, resulting in a yield to maturity of -0.720%, just above the record low yield for a 10-year Treasury Inflation-Protected Security, which is -0.750%, set by this same TIPS was it was reissued in September. A week ago, it looked like this reissue would generate at yield of about -0.83%. Just before the auction, experts were predicted a yield of 0.746%.

    That’s significant. We’ve been waiting to see the yield on TIPS, which has been plummeting for about 18 months, start to bottom, or even rise. There’s no reason to say we’ve hit bottom yet, but this auction wasn’t a record low and that is a milestone."
