Understanding and Keeping Up with the Markets through COVID-19

Throughout the spring, municipal market spreads underwent historic swings and primary issues ground to a halt for several weeks. The volatility was sparked by stay-at-home orders across the nation and was bookended by the announcement of the Federal Reserve’s Municipal Liquidity Facility (MLF). Participants from various aspects of the market will discuss the implications of COVID-19 on the municipal markets, how to keep up with current market conditions and what to expect moving forward.
