There will be few deals in the primary market for investors to digest this week as many issues will be put on hold until after the Thanksgiving holiday. The result will be a drop in volume to an estimated $2.25 billion after reaching as high as $5.09 billion last week - the strongest in several weeks after supply gradually inched its way up amid the nation's ongoing fiscal recovery effort, according to data from Thomson Reuters.

Negotiated volume is estimated to be $2.11 billion this week versus $5.04 billion last week, while competitive sales will total $135.8 million compared with $496.5 million last week, according to the data.
