The article focuses on the municipal bond market in the U.S., as of March 4, 2005. Treasuries gave up earlier gains as uncertainty surrounding today's employment report kept earlier enthusiasm in check. Nevertheless, the primary still indicated some firmness in the market as underwriters selectively lowered yields on $232 million of Detroit water supply system revenue bonds at repricing. Economists polled by IFR BondData Americas are projecting a 200,000 increase in payrolls in February 2005 compared to a gain of 146,000 in January 2005.
