The author discusses the performances of U.S. municipal markets as of July 26, 2007. They claim that the market enjoyed a firmer stance by gaining three to five basis points, and this is due to the decision of investors to focus on this market instead on corporate bonds. Aside from this, they also cite the strong performance of the Treasury market, which allegedly opened at 4.90 percent and finished at 4.78 percent. The reason for this, further, is due to the Treasury market itself.
