Look like they've been tasked with a buy order (or the closing of the shorts). They were quite noticeable on the bid in the last half hour of trading yesterday soaking up sells & are the same this morning so far.
I agree with how this is "calculated", but surely, when the order is placed, it has a flag on it that says whether it is a 'buy' or a 'sell' trade ? In this day and age, this type of financial reporting should be very easy, and the way that the trade is displayed is obviously wrong, and needs to be redesigned and corrected by the London Stock Exchange's programmers. It shouldn't be "guesswork", based on the where the trade price is in relation to the BID and ASK. If I place a 'buy' order and it happens to be a limit order which is at the mid price, and the mid price moves on, it should not now display as a sell, as the order is still a 'buy' order, and should be reported as such. Is this another part of market manipulation ? Answers on a postcard, please !!!!!
