The Bond Buyer's municipal bond indexes rose for the fifth consecutive week, putting yields at the highest levels since 1992 as fixed-income markets continued to be buffeted by reports of solid economic growth and anticipation of today's employment figures.

The 30-year revenue bond index jumped 12 basis points, to 6.82% yesterday from 6.70% a week ago. This is the highest level for the 30-bond barometer since April 30, 1992, when the index read 6.82%.
