The article reports on the slight increase in municipal bond prices in the secondary market on March 20, 2006 due to modest gains in Treasuries. Treasury prices inched higher with the production on the ten-year note decline as the market rebounded from minor losses. The performance of the Treasuries during the week has decreased municipals on relative basis bucking the trend that has marked most of the current year.
