Market on close imbalance for the Nasdaq and NYSEclosing auction was a -2.5B for both the Nasdaq and the NYSE combined. Early data indicated a market on close imbanace of a sell. Price movement confirmed an right at 14:00 ET when sell programs lit SpyGate and fired continuously until 14:40. The early sell-off muted the response to the market on close imbalance 15:50 reveal. Price action on the $2.5B sell imbalance led to an up-side bounce into the close. The downside was already traded out of the market earlier based on the early data. As Scotty would say, “There’s not more downside to give captain”. During the final 5 minutes the market on close imbalances paired off and the markets bounced upside.
