ABSTRACT
The article reports on the performance of municipal bonds for February 23, 2005. Helped by a benign consumer price index report, municipal bonds finished higher yesterday and longer-dated Treasuries managed to hold on to their gains even as the minutes of the February Federal Open Market Committee meeting reinforced expectations of more rate hikes. Traders said the market faded a little bit as the session progressed, but still yields fell one or two basis points on maturities longer than five years amid some crossover and real money interest.
