10-year TIPS auctions at -0.630%, well above record low

The U.S. Treasury announced today that its auction of a new 10-year Treasury Inflation-Protected Security went off with a coupon rate of 0.125% and a yield to maturity of -0.630%, well above the record-low yield of -0.750% for 9-year, 10-month reissue last year in September.

This is the second 10-year TIPS auction in a row that failed to set a record low, a good trend for TIPS buyers who have been seeing yields negative to inflation for nearly two years, well up the maturity ladder.

Because buyers are getting a yield 0.755% below the coupon rate, they will be paying up for this issue, about $107.50 for every $100 of value.
