The article reports on the fall of Bond Buyer's weekly yield indexes in the face of softer economic data, light supply and still-high oil prices. Weaker economic data that provided support for the bond market this week included the August consumer price index, which rose 0.1%, below the 0.2% expected by economists. According to Standard & Poor Corp,'s chief economist, David Wyss, financial managers were too hasty in adjusting their long-term portfolios this spring when the Federal Reserve began broadcasting its interest rate raising strategy. Since then, the economy hasn't rebounded as quickly as expected.
