Investors Brace for Inflation Surge

Investors Brace for Inflation Surge

(New York)

One way to judge the fear level of investors in regards to inflation is to look at flows into TIPS, or Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities. The bond market had its biggest bout of volatility in around a decade over the last 6 weeks, and one big upshot of that has been a surge into TIPS, as investors seek a safe haven for the strong rise in inflation which they see coming. BlackRock's TIPS ETF, for instance, just hit a new high with $25 bn under management.

FINSUM : Interest in TIPS has a lot to do with the Fed and rates, but also with the government's budget deficit, which is set to widen.
