Oreninc Index Falls in Holiday-Shortened Week

The Oreninc Index stumbled modestly for the week ending May 22, 2014. While it’s never good to see a dip in performance, this was an expected one given the Victoria Day holiday last week and Memorial Day in the States this week. Total dollars announced jumped to $115.2m, a two-week high. Brokered dollars were down to $15m on one deal, a nine-week low. There were no bought deals for the first time in 19 weeks. Expect next week to be at a similarly low level, given the holiday in the States and the unofficial mark of the beginning of summer.
