The Bond Buyer's weekly yield indexes were narrowly mixed this week, as the municipal market strung together several slightly firmer sessions amid the primary market pricing of a number of sizeable new issues.

At the forefront was Tuesday's pricing of $883 million of general obligation bonds for New York City by senior manager Morgan Stanley. The deal was originally slated at $483 million, but was upsized last Friday by $100 million and Tuesday by another $300 million due to investor demand, mostly from the retail sector. The city received $546 million of retail orders and filled $454 million of those.
