Municipal bond yields declined two or three basis points on May 13, 2003 following the new-issue pricings and institutional demand. On the economic front, the U.S. international trade deficit increased from 40.4 billion dollar in February to 43.5 billion dollar in March. In the negotiated sector of the new-issue market, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. priced and repriced 210 million dollar of Hillsborough County, Florida-based Industrial Development Authority hospital revenue refunding bonds. Bonds due in 2008 and 2013 yielded three basis points less than Municipal Market Data's triple-A yield curve scale, while bonds due in 2018 yielded five points less and a 2023 maturity yielded nine points more.
