Given that 10 year Treasuries closed above 3% today, we thought it would be appropriate to share this snap shot of the current AAA municipal yield curve (1 to 30 years)

Transaction Cost of Munis for Retail Clients
Analysis of the municipal bond bid-ask spread observed by retail investors when transacting in the secondary market.
Muni Spreads
Average spread between high and low price of an active bond on any given day is 2 points. This is generally considered the amount brokers like to work for in commission when selling bonds to retail. For a purchase of $10,000, that equals $200 in commission. There seems to be very little correlation to direction of interest rates. What weak correlation there is shows that the amount of spread actually increases when bonds fall in value. Meaning brokers earn more money when rates rise and prices drop. Just food for thought.
