ABSTRACT
The yield indexes of 'Bond Buyer' were all lower in the week of May 14, 2003, as investors shifted their focus from the war in Iraq to the health of the economy. On May 13, Treasuries and equities made gains, and municipal yields fell two to three basis points. Treasury prices rose while municipal yields fell three or four basis points, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted. The 20-bond index slipped two basis points to 4.74 percent.
