Charlie,Bonds are an institutionally dominated market.I hadn't really considered that, but I'm sure you're right. So do you agree with the statement that I was given, that the TIPS market is very illiquid, and to have to wait a few hours for a market order execution is not unusual? Since institutions probably buy in huge quantities, but not all that frequently, it seems plausible, if not likely.Complaining feels good, but you need to vote with your feet.You know, you're right, complaining DOES feel good! :-)I'm not a bond trader, though. Except for some preferreds (which are obviously an entirely different market ... but talk about illiquid!), I buy only Treasuries. I have an IB account, but until they do start trading Treasuries, I can't vote with my feet or any other part of my body. :)Ken
