The article reports that new issue activity in the primary market will be relatively scarce during an abbreviated week of trading, except for a moderately-sized higher education, essential service and general obligation offerings in the U.S. Among the largest deal involves a 261.4 million dollars of revenue offering from the Curators of the University of Missouri. The temporary slowdown in new education supply is in stark contrast to the primary market totaling 6 billion dollars when competitive and negotiated volume began increasing to significant higher levels.
