    Hoping someone can help me out here

    Want to trade 10 yr TIPS against 10 yr note futs and am only able to do this via futures i.e. no physical TIPS

    Is there anyway to trade this spread synthetically? Can't find any existing futs contract to express my stagflationary view
  2. (1) Vanguard has a mutual fund with TIPS in it. You might be able to trade it versus other Vanguard Funds or other fixed income ETF's. (2) Stagflation? You could buy treasuries and short-sell corporates and/or munis.

    My broker is able to clear futs, along with NYSE and NASDAQ and I think OTC ETFs and equities +opts.

    I think you're on the right track there - I'll see if I can find a TIPS rich ETF and work from there
