In Julian Expect View video posted today, he mentioned an inflation hedged bonds trade that he existed from in Aug. How could a retail investor make a similar trade? He also talked about making over 100bps of profit on that trade. That is only 1%, I am assuming any real amount of profit would come from an options or leverage trade?

Where am I?

In The Exchange you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Julian were referring to TIPS (Treasury inflation-protected securities).

Retail investors have easy access to it worldwide throw ETF's. In North America exchanges (TIP), in Europe (TIPU :LSE) denominated in USD and (TIUP) traded in EUR.  This aren't leveraged products. To leverage you have to use Options/Futures. 

If I'm not mistaken, had you purchased a 10-year note when it was 1% higher than it is today, you'd have made 7% profit on the nominal value within three months. That's not too shabby. 

But yeah, options would have really paid out.
