Oreninc Index Falls Over Holiday-Shortened Weeks

The Oreninc Index dropped for the two holiday-shortened weeks ending January 2, 2014. Total dollars and average deal size stumbled lower than any level previously in 2013, and there were no brokered or bought deals in either week. While obviously not an encouraging sign, the fact that these two weeks included three non-trading days explains the poor performance for the most part. Expect this valley to rise at least a little as we head into 2014.
