The article reports that underwriters in the U.S. will have to take a cue from last week's market and keep new-issue prices cheap to attract demand, even if it means lowering prices if they want to avoid carrying major balances during the holiday-abbreviated week. Due to yesterday's observance of Presidents Day, the primary activity kicks off today with a two-day retail order period for a $500mn Chicago general obligation and refunding, which will be officially priced for institutions on Thursday by senior underwriter Banc of America Securities LLC. In what will be the single largest sale for a Nevada issuer, the Clark County School District will bring approximately $540mn of GO refunding bonds to the competitive market on Thursday in two separate series, each sized at $269.7mn. The slate of deals this week will further test the market on the heels of last week's semiannual congressional testimony by Federal Reserve Board chairman Alan Greenspan.
