After a brief respite, The Bond Buyer's municipal bond indexes rose this week for the sixth time in seven weeks, as last week's rally dissipated in the face of economic reports showing strong growth and pressure on prices.

The 20-bond and 11-bond indexes of general obligation yields each gained five basis points. The 20-bond index rose to 6.49% from 6.44%, and the 11-bond index climbed to 6.40% from 6.35% last Thursday.
