Looking at the days closing price, there seems to be a huge disjunction between the ALSI, TOPI and STX40. Wonder what happened??

ALSI futures or index ?? an STX40 will often close/trade slightly out of sync as it has a market maker but the trades can happen within that space, especially on closing auction ..

The close for STX40 appears much higher than is should be. Being corrected by the first couple of trades.

Is the market maker involved in the closing auction i.e are those 100 000 trades still on the trade system at closing auction?? If not, then maybe an outlier somehow crept in.
