Investors returning from the Labor Day holiday will be met with slim pickings in the primary market this week as long-term volume is expected to drop to just over $1.50 billion this week, led by the pricing of two higher education financings on Wednesday.

With the market closed Monday in observance of the holiday, volume is estimated at $1.59 billion, according to Ipreo LLC and The Bond Buyer, which pales in comparison to the revised $3.95 billion that was priced last week, according to Thomson Reuters.
