    The yield on 10-year Treasury Inflation Protected Securities
 dipped as low as -1.243% and the yield on 30-year
TIPS went as low as -0.608%, both records, in

from the U.S. Labor Department showed prices increased more than

expectations and that's why you get a day like today," said Gary
Pzegeo, head of fixed income for CIBC Private Wealth.
    The benchmark 10-year yield was up 7.7 basis

points at 1.19%.
