Hi Terry,
You recently wrote an article highlighting treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS) as a way to prevent inflation from eating into investment profits. One of your suggested vehicles for investing in TIPS was the iShares TIP ETF. I’ve owned TIP for several years, and recently it’s only gone down, even as inflation has been materializing. Could you please explain why?

Terry Says

We’re just starting to see real signs of inflation — so if inflation increases from the rather stagnant 2 percent we have had for the past year or two, the TIPs investments will start to protect you from the inflation that may be coming!
