The article reports that municipal bond mutual funds tipped slightly back into negative territory in November as they incurred a net outflow of $6 million. The November results left municipal funds with a net loss of $12.74 billion so far for 2004, standing in stark contrast to taxable bond and equity funds, which both reported net inflows for the first 11 months of the year. The totals apply only to open-end funds and exclude reinvested dividends and money market data, which is tabulated separately.
