Get a load of this. LPX closed on the NYSE at 13 3/8. A friend of mine had a sell order in for 2300 shares at 13 7/16. The trade got executed at 4:11. The close on my chart changed from 3/8 to 7/16. I also checked Big Charts and Quote Com and they both have the close at 13 7/16.
To top it off, I had the bid, offered, and size of LPX for all the regional exchanges on my screen until after 4:00EST. I saw with my own eyes the 2300 shares go off the board when the market wrapped up a couple minutes after 4:00 and the volume did not change when it went off the board meaning to me they just took it off when the market closed.
I thought all day orders got cancelled at 4:00 or at the most a minute or two after unless the broker is specifically told you want to trade in after hours trading.
That was the the only trade after the last NYSE trade.
I put up the Hang Seng index that last closed about 15,100. (There seems to be more than one of them). I put the 200 SMA on it, and the 200 SMA average is curently at about 14,000. The index clearly has 5 waves up on the 2 year daily, with the major 4th wave being at about 12,000. Are we talking about the same index?
How does this relate to either the Dow or LPX? It seems to me it would get complicated using a foreign index to try and figure out what our market is going to do. I don't understand the relevance.
