The tumbleweeds have rolled back in on Friday; all eyes must have been on Winnipeg and the return of the Jets. Two Fridays in a row have been very weak, but last week as a whole was relatively strong for the financing market.

On Friday there was one deal opening with expected proceeds of $5 million. Additionally there were three deal closings with gross proceeds of $78 million.
