    15.85 close?

    What the heck happened? And then another bid at 14.70 right after the close. I know this has been jumping towards the end of sessions but that move seems ridiculous.

    • MTH had a big buy imbalance today-cant remember how many shares, but on a light day with no body taking the other side of the order, the specialist has to keep going up in price in his order book until he finds the shares willing to be sold to fill the buy order. same thing happened in WCI today- it was trading 3.30 x 3.35 right before the closing print, it had a 150k buy order- closing print was 3.63 i believe. Not that unusual for those kind of imbalances in these kind of stocks, but usually they don't have crazy prints like that, just up or down 10-20 cents away from the market (depending on buy or sell imbalance). Wish I had been in this one though...
