I'd like to invest in the Treasury Inflation Proof securities (TIPS) but when I look at something like Vanguard or Fidelity, there are umpteen Treasury securities listed and I can't figure it all out. Then I see that I can buy the TIPS at a Treasury "auction," which occurs I think three/four times a year. What is an auction in this context? I deal with Scottrade online and wonder if I can buy the TIPS that way.I'm also confused about what time periods the TIPS are for. One year, five, ten?And, finally, what's everybody's opinion on this investment? MizL
