I placed an order for the 10 year TIPS, on 4/11/06 (the day before yesterday), in my Fidelity IRA. This isn't T-Direct, but I expect that the settlement date is controlled by the Treasury. This is how the order confirmation read:CUSIP: 912828ET3Description: UNITED STATES TREAS NTS TIPS 2.000% 01/15/2016Trade Date: 04/12/2006Settlement Date: 04/17/2006Maturity Date: 01/15/2016The estimated value of this order cannot be calculated until after the security's price and yield have been established. Expected yield is 2.4%.I bought 30 bonds. My account was charged $29,096.57, on 4/12. How do I calculate the yield, on these bonds?I'm puzzled as to why the maturity date is 1/15/2016, not 4/12/2016. Did I inadvertently buy a secondary-market TIPS, although the description read like a bond that hadn't yet had an auction?Thanks,Wendy
