TIPS Auction Closed at 2.691%

Results for today’s auction of the 4-year 6-month TIPS are in. It closed at 2.691% real. I’m very happy about it. I’m more excited that my spreadsheet produced results that matched the Treasury’s announcement to all decimal places! My initial, incorrect, quick and dirty estimate based on 2.6% yield was about $3 per $1,000 bond higher than the final results. Not bad, but now I know a better way.
