Abstract

A TIPS ladder can be constructed similarly to a Treasury strips ladder, using the same date from the Wall Street Journal Market Data Center, which provides a daily report of wholesale prices from the secondary markets for all outstanding TIPS issues.

On January 3, 2017, there were forty outstanding TIPS available, with maturity dates ranging from January 2017 to February 2046.
