Corporate and municipal bond markets. The volume of new, publiclyoffered, corporate and municipal securities expected during this holidayshortened week will be somewhat below the average weekly volume over the pant

Federal Reserve estimates are based upon published reports of i
sold and scheduled for offering; corporate rights offerings are
included as of date subscription rights expire

Yields on new corporate bonds edged up last week, while the great
bulk of the week s offerings were very poorly received. The two large, competitively-offered utility issues were said to be only 25-30% spoken for by the
end of the week. In addition two recently offered utility issues, with large
unsold balances, were released from syndicate, and in free market trading t[he
yields on these issues advanced about 14 basis points.
Yields on municipals advanced somewhat last week, but new issues in
this market received only a fair reception. The unfavorable market conditions
led New York State to postpone until February 19 its $75 million offering, previously scheduled for this week.
FNMA secondary market and other operations. Offerings of mortga&i
by private holders for purchase by the Federal National Mortgage Association in
the secondary market declined sharply in December, but the decline was from
near-record high in November and at $209.4 mi11ion-the December level was istill
relatively high. A factor in the lower level of offerings was the reduction

(one point) initiated by FNMA on November 25.
Purchases by the Federal National Mortgage Association, which had
fluctuated within a moderately narrow range in recent months, rose in
December to $200.1 million but were still somewhat below the level of offerings
The December level brought the total purchases for the fourth quarter as a wh<j>le,
to $622.2 million, second only to the record first quarter of 1966. While
offerings have apparently changed little in recent weeks, purchases — which
offerings by about 6 weeks - have continued to rise to an indicated level in
excess of $250 million for the entire month.
Sales by FNMA, as has been the case since mid-1965, continued
abnormally low.
Stock prices. In declining trading volume, stock prices moved sharoly
lower last week. At the close Friday, Standard & Poor's index of 500 stocks
stood at 89.86, down 2.41 from the previous Friday. Such a low level has not
been seen since the Middle East crisis of early June. Trading volume average!
9.5 million shares a day.

offerings, in the United States see Exhibits I and J. There is no simple relationship
between the data shown in the Exhibit and that shown in Exhibits I and J because the latter•*
includes privately placed securities in the period in which funds are actually taken down i
•but only in the amount of takedown while the placements shown in this exhibit are included
when reported, frequently with little or no information concerning timing of takedown.
3
Full or partial takedown may take place both prior and subsequent to the date a placement v
is reported.
