ABSTRACT
This article reports that all but two of the Bond Buyer's yield indexes closed lower this week despite heavy new issue volume, as investors took advantage of lower prices for municipals and Treasuries following last week's bond market sell-off and turbulence this week in the equities market. The rally in the Treasuries market was fueled by General Motors Corp.'s warning that the company expected earnings to be weaker than expected in 2005. Record highs for oil prices also made equities investors nervous and contributed to some reallocation of funds to the Treasury and municipal bond markets.
