ABSTRACT
This article reports that municipal bonds finished little changed after the market drifted aimlessly all day as it failed to get definitive direction from Treasures and neither buyers nor sellers dominated in the secondary. Traders said some trades took place at cheaper levels as participants prepared for upcoming supply and were looking to lighten up their inventories, but long-dated bonds changed hands around the same level. Some traders found signs of life in the 10-year maturity range, but overall the holiday-shortened week finished on a lackluster note.
