The article reports that unable to shake off a negative tone, the municipal bond market finished lower yesterday, as participants waded through many offerings in the secondary while absorbing more than $1.8 billion of sizable new deals, including $782 million of California general obligation bonds. Traders said municipal yields rose two or three basis points, as the market continued to edge lower along with Treasuries, which fell following a stronger than expected manufacturing index released by the Institute for Supply Management. Separate reports showed that both construction spending and consumer spending remained strong in October.
