Yields on TIPS are flashing negative on shorter terms, indicating if inflation doesn't pick up investors can lose money on their inflation-indexed Treasury notes. Even trading on 30-year TIPS only factors in CPI at 2.30%, well-below what some economists see as a sustainable long-term level. TIPS yields: 5-year -0.91%, 10-year -0.07, 20-year 0.56%, 30-year 0.94%.
