The Bond Buyer's municipal bond indexes rose sharply this week, putting the weekly indexes at their highest yields in almost two years, as bond prices failed to recover from yet another Friday battering.

The 20-bond index and 11-bond index each gained 13 points from last Thursday to yesterday, with the 20-bond rising from 6.24% to 6.37%, and the 11-bond from 6.16% to 6.29%. That put the 20-bond index at its highest level since Nov. 12, 1992, when it was 6.38%, and the 11-bond index at its highest point since Nov. 5, 1992, when it was 6.42%.
