Personally long or short, deflation or inflation TIPS are not well priced and the fixed portion of the coupon stinks. 8/31/10 auction coupon was 2.125 for the 30 year, even with inflation adjustments that is not much of a return for the length of time you are putting your money to work. It wasn't too long ago you could get 2.125 in a traditional savings account.
