The Eqcome CEF Index declined 1.5% in November while its related NAV declined a further 2.0% causing the Index discount to narrow to 4.4% from 4.9% the previous month. 

On sector basis, equity CEF discounts expand while Fixed-Income and Other sectors contracted. Muni CEFs flipped to a premium after having sunk to a discount earlier in the year.
