The primary market is expected to include a handful of large deals that run the gamut from long-term, fixed-rate, tax-exempt offerings in various sectors to short-term, floating-rate, and taxable issues that are part of an estimated $7.56 billion of new volume anticipated for pricing this week, according to Ipreo LLC and The Bond Buyer.

The deals will arrive on the heels of an eventful market last week that saw municipals gained two points late Thursday after the Dow Jones industrial average slid nearly 1,0000 points, or 9.2%, and closed down 347.80, or 3.20%, following comments by the European Central Bank at its monetary policy meeting and possible trading problems.
