The Bond Buyer has now published the 20-Bond Index® for the period ended April 17, 2014. It was unchanged from the previous week at 4.32. A strong calendar of state names are up for sale this week, making for a lot of interest in the tax-exempt market.
Below are links to The Bond Buyer's ® 20- Bond Index along with a chart showing the trend of the Bond Buyer's ® 20-Bond Index for the past two years. For those interested, we have data for prior years and will be pleased to provide it upon request.
