So we've been discussing both TLT and TIP as potential investments.  They seem to move in relative synchronization, depending on how the stock market does, however this doesn't make a lot of sense.  TIPS should really come into their own during a recovery, while long term treasuries are better in the deflationary environment.  I can see the cases for both but I think it's odd that they seem to move together.
