This is when you know it's not your day to die. The driver of this car walked away.

In a only in South Florida type story (Maserati {model?} vs Ferrari SF90 Plug-in Hybrid $650k list) a man was not so lucky back a couple of weeks ago:-

RFI for a Mystery please

After every trading day, index futures (and I think index ETFs too) close with an outsized move, usually to the down side (see the chart below). You can't actually trade it (though I've never tried to put in an order) and the market opens more or less where it left off before this final bar.

I have two questions: (1) What does this bar mean? (my guess is it has something to do with settling residue orders).

And (2) What does it say about the market (whether the final hour or the direction forward)? (anecdotally I've seen some significance attached to the closing level of this bar).

Does anyone know anything about it?

It’s size relative to gold. If the two are in conflict trust the buck.

If we talk correlation, then the buck is the strongest. Gold is a tiny market, forex is not. So, if buck says gold should be down, it likely will be. All about chance. Buck up makes gold more expensive abroad.
Europe sees a much bigger move in gold right now. A break out is a break out, I am talking very ST into next week. Don’t know after that. A seasonal bottom is around Dec. 1.

Before the Bernank the house occasionally lost. (Meaning strong move into expiration, max pain failure). In overliquified market
the house wins 100% of the time because they manipulate to win and have infinite liquidity to do so.

After they lever up 1000x and liquidity dries up they theater to blow up the world (cause it’s bad they lost
In the game of picking nickels in front of the steamroller, options writing). Thank you for obliging -g-

His dad lived in Kenosha and he had other relatives there too when you say you don’t agree with his politics I’m not exactly sure what you’re referring to. He did have a reason to be there but it was absolute stupidity to be walking along with a gun in my opinion. But given how police in numerous cities failed to protect businesses during the BLM protests I can see why he was motivated

Let's also point out the obvious. If Kyle was a black teen toting an AR-15 and shot a bunch of white folks in the exact same manner and was defended by a public defender, I suspect the outcome would have been far different.

It helps to have perspective. I think Kyle's legal fund was bulging at the seams. If he had a public defender, his outcome probably would have been different.

Money can buy better verdicts.

Matt is a great reporter. He should have a Pulitzer by now.

I agree with everything you’re saying but again this is a consequence of allowing cities to burn, people are going to take matters into their own hands what did the authorities expect? I’m watching the news tonight and I’m still seeing a whole bunch of false information and false narratives.

We are pretty close in our positions. He was an untrained civilian who armed himself against an angry mob. This could not have ended well. Anyone with that kind of mindset doesn't have the politics that I'd agree with.

That said, I can see why he would be motivated to do so, and more importantly I cannot see how *after* that decision was made and he faced that encounter, anyone else would have done better than he did. So I would not convict him of murder. If they had brought in a charge of stupidity and poor judgement, then I would convict him of that.

Even though the criminal trial is over, I expect some civil suits. Again, Kyle's legal defense fund may be sufficient to protect him from that.

I don't watch TV news, so I don't know what's being reported. I read stuff like Reuters and Axios.

From what I understand, what transpired can be described as being in the middle of the fog of war, where many unfortunate outcomes can happen.
