Damn, it happened again. Check Bloomberg just now (1:40am EST Fri morning)
and it has 5yr TIPS yield as 4+%, price 93+. Even more oddly, "time" is listed
1902hrs, same as last night.

Anybody have any idea what this is ?

Must be a closed after-hours session with special deals for really good TIPS customers, like Ha.

Well I sold one of my TIPs bonds it was a 6 figure transaction but I doubt enough to change a market LOL. Although TIPs bonds did jump,undoubtably because of this thread, and the phony flight to quality that bond trader were all talking about.

Buying that much OSM, and ISM with last weeks drama was kinda of interesting (especially cause I was in Maui and not using my home PC). My average price was 21.33 a bit better than the Rabbit offered me.

I just bought more OSM @ $21.15. It can go ahead and go up now. I think I have plenty.
