The Bond Buyer’s weekly yield indexes declined this week, as tax-exempts showed gains in nearly all the week’s sessions.

“It was another real solid week. Munis feel pretty darn good,” said Evan Rourke, portfolio manager at Eaton Vance. “We’re seeing some extension from shorter trades, the new issues this week seemed to go real well, there’s a strong Treasury market, the ­addition of some more BABs ... really some of the same old stories, but you really managed to have quite a nice week in munis, and yields have come down a bit.
