The tax-exempt market extended losses into Tuesday morning as yields continued to rise across the curve.

Traders said there were more bids out in the morning, providing more selling pressure. "The market is still off five basis points," a New York trader said. "Customers are showing bids. Levels are adjusted but in fact there are still bids. This selloff is going to continue as long as the bid-wanteds keep up."
