The article reports that almost all of the bond indexes in the U.S. have declined. Investors have become sensitive to inflation data. The 11-bond index slumped by five basis points to 4.52%. The revenue bond index also fell by one basis points to 5.24 percent. The 30-year Treasury bond also fell by five basis points to 5.18%, its lowest level since April. According to Evan Rourke, a municipal market strategist at Popular Securities, the market could finally be poised for some gains after a long sell off.
