ABSTRACT
The article reports that the municipal bond market finished higher on Thursday and bid-ask spreads narrowed after Treasuries rallied on the back of a weaker-than-expected regional manufacturing report. With only an abbreviated Friday session left before the end of the year, traders said participants were willing to pay up for bonds and some trades indicated that yields moved three or four basis points lower, in sympathy with government bond yields. Encouraged by the ability of the government bond market to rebound from its lows, buyers were more active on Thursday and more willing to take on risk, while earlier in the week they hardly exhibited any interest.
