The article reports that all of The Bond Buyer's yield indexes rose in March 2005, as interest rates increased following the Federal Open Market Committee's 25 basis point hike in its federal funds rate. However, yields rose following the announcement largely due to a statement released by the committee stating that inflation pressures had picked up. The Bond Buyer's revenue bond index rose five basis points to 5.04%. The one-year note index increased seven basis points to 2.55%, marking the tenth straight week that it has risen.
