Yields on The Bond Buyer's weekly indexes declined for the fourth straight week as the settling of the dust from Orange County, Calif., and the belief that interest rates have topped out for the month helped firm up the market.

The Bond Buyer's indexes of 20 general obligation bonds fell 11 basis points, to 6.77% from 6.88% a week ago. The index of higher grade 11 general obligation bonds was also down 11 basis points, to 6.67% from 6.78% last week.
