    I’m mystified by an article in today’s WSJ about how investors “plowed money into” TIP and its analogues this week — $1.2B, third highest on record and highest since one year previously according to BoA. The chart I track is at http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=TIP&p=W&b=5&g=0&id=p51794316612 and the trading volume looks very mediocre, nor was the price move very impressive. TLT did about the same (just substitute TLT for TIP in the upper left corner and refresh). What am I missing?
