The article reports on the status of municipal bond yield indexes during the week in the United States ending February 10, 2006. The indexes were down after demand for long-dated paper increased due to strong 30-year Treasury bond auction and yields on the short end increased because of growing concern that the Federal Open Market Committee will continue to raise the overnight lending rate. Yields decreased after the Treasury sold $14 billion of bonds in the final of its $48 billion quarterly refunding package.
