The yield on the US 10-year treasury inflation-protected security (TIPS), which provides a hedge against inflation, could drop to -1% if the recent resurgence of coronavirus cases in the US prompts the Federal Reserve to give stronger dovish guidance on Wednesday, strategists at Bank of America (BofA) said on Tuesday, as tweeted by Bloomberg’s Lisa Abramowicz. 

The 10-year TIPS yield fell to a record low of -0.90% last week, having hit a high of 0.62% during the March crash.
