Thank you for allowing the Cumulative Tally to "Carry On Regardless"...
As expected, today was a very light volume day with the Americans celebrating their Thanksgiving. I don't expect much difference with trading tomorrow as they close early at 1 pm EST. We wait for next week and, hopefully, something to entertain us while the behind the scenes continues apace.
Today's Half Cent Tango down to close at $0.27 on a tiny 98k (52k Germany; 0k US - closed) seemed to have the computers involved to move the price down a smidgen. The first batch of trades illustrates the point.
Note the high use of the Alternate Exchanges yet again by 001 & 002 as they try to take the price down outside of the TSXV.
Once 017 stepped in on a 500 lot (computer) trade on the TSXV, the Alternate Exchanges were used to bypass the TSXV in the hope to trigger a trade lower than $0.275 on the TSXV. This eventually happened right at the close. See below.
Anonymous was pushing all day even with so little volume.
The crossing on the Alternates is a strategy often used by both 002 and 001.
