This article focuses on the performance of Municipal Bonds at the stock exchange. Municipal bonds edged higher on Friday in light trading as the treasury market posted minor gains and the government yield curve steepened slightly. Several traders said participants began showing interest in bonds that mature in about 10 years. At the market opened on Friday, the 10-year yield on Municipal Market Data's triple A scale was 85.3% of treasuries versus a three-month average of 84.1%, indicating municipals are relatively cheap.
