Holding TIPs at IB

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by mikesmithv, Jul 13, 2010.

  1. There was talk in a thread a while back about holding treasuries instead of cash at Interactive Brokers to get a better return (for the moment) and not affect IB's Buying Power calculation for futures trading. Is there a way to hold TIPS at IB or do only standard treasuries work for this? TIPS would be ideal for an IRA account since you would not be taxed on inflation if that comes about.
