I do not quite understand the imbalance of NYSE and NASDAQ that you mention. Can you articulate?—Kwancy

Sure. First off, the specialists at the NYSE receive market on close orders (MOC) all day until 3:40 pm Eastern; this is not done the same way on the NASDAQ. These can be very large orders where the brokers/banks/funds/ institutions are willing to either buy or sell shares at the final price of the day (the closing price). For example, there may be one million shares to sell (at any price), and 500,000 shares to buy (at any price), all marked MOC. That would leave an imbalance of 500,000 shares extra to sell.
