  1. Hi

    I am looking for leveraged derivatives like Mini Futures in Europe on Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS). I am looking forward to some help.

    Thank you.

    There are some TIPS etfs out there, not sure if there are options on them.
  3. There's an etf symbol 'TIP'

    This has options but no futures.

    I think it's late to go long TIP:


    Although a Dec ATM 121/110 bull put spread will yield 21% on money committed... and could probably get you put the stock which yields 3.08% today , after which you could sell ATM covered calls to add another 2%. It's a pretty stable holding:^GSPC

    although it's from Barclays the great LIBOR fixer.
