Oreninc Index Update: May 31, 2012

 

 

Index up following holiday-shortened week

 

The Oreninc Index went up slightly during the week ending May 31, 2012.  The situation may even be better than it looks. Even though markets were slow on Monday the 28th due to American Memorial Day, the other four trading days carried the week in a slow but un-abysmal manner.  We also tend to see a dropoff in weeks following holiday-shortened weeks, so a bump is a good sign.  Overall,however, financing remains difficult for juniors, and the summer is unlikely to provide much relief.
