The UT price is pretty irrelevant anyway. The reason being they have 5 minutes to enter what price they will pay for or be prepared to sell their stock for at this point, no-one is trading here, just entering. Furthermore, their entres have to be within 5% of the last AT trade of the day. Which today was 2.05 @ 16:19.
After 5 mins and all the entries are in, the SETS computer swings into action, and what it does is calculate from the entries the HIGHEST VOLUME trades that can be made, the MOST shares it can UNCROSS from one side of the book to the other. It is literally "matching" any trade that will trade at the prices on the book, if you see what I mean? This little excesise takes up to 30 secs above the 5 min auction. So basically just a computer generated figure, to square the books off at the end of the day, there is no actual trading to produce this close.Then te next morning it goes into the same 5 min auction and the prices will change again.
