This article focuses on the effects of the all Bond Buyer Indexes rise. All of The Bond Buyer's yield indexes rose, as a marginal sell-off on December 17, 2004 pushed up yields slightly despite an otherwise uneventful week leading up to the holidays. Many mini investors appeared to hold on to their funds and refrained from selling, as market participants did some yearend shuffling of their own internal accounts and repositioning for the New Year. The weekly average yield to maturity on The Bond Buyer 40-bond municipal bond index finished at 4.89%, up two basis points from last week's 4.87%.
