Day and Night Overview of Trading Week 1/26-1/29 Qualitative Analysis for $GME Purpose: 1. An easy overview of basic components and trends of days and nights 2. Signify possible patterns in exchange 3. Propose ladder attack areas 4. Highlight events 5. Inspire further study of these topics and if manipulation occurred Limitations: 1. Does not draw conclusions explicitly but has areas marked as conjecture requiring proof or more data 2. Does not attempt to incriminate or cast blame or responsibility for any entity financial or otherwise 3. Qualitative at best with limited data Further: 1. Compare buy order patterns and sell order patterns 2. Analyze order origin and flow to uncover ladder attacks and “pumping” or “dumping” 3. Consider all forces involved including media, agency, federal, and process chains Conclusion: Patterns outlined below for sell orders (in red) do not qualitatively match buy orders (in green). The structure for sells is significantly different each day than buys. Some attacks start at even times e.g. 0930. The highly suspicious nature of the discrepancies deserves more study.

Red half circles (MIDDLE) represent a day from 0400 to 2000. Notice volume decreases each day peaking in volatility (BOTTOM) on Thursday 1/28. Proposed Possible Attacks/manipulation Nighttime of 1/26-1/27 Low volume steady rise throughout night (notice red candles in relation to each other) until exactly 1800 consistently increase in candle lengths (though disjointed at 1815) drives down price prior to early hour trading. Attack stops at 1830 (or 1900 if buy orders masked sell) Trade Hours of 1/27 Volatility in prices swing from around $250 to $380. Too much noise to infer patterns. Red arrow indicates peculiar large price low volume point. Nighttime of 1/27 to 1/28 First appearance of possible ladder attacks. Notice candle length increasing. First one at around 1700, another at 1845, third (disjointed) at 0800. The third consist of significant noise. However, each possible attack progressively gets larger and larger. Trade Hours of 1/28 Significant price increase leading to possible ladder attack at exactly 1000. Trading is restricted for many and halted for others. Recovery from first possible attack is rapid but delayed. Further volatility throughout the day. Final possible attack at end of day drives down closing price around 40 points. Nighttime of 1/28-1/29 Either new attack or continuation of prior but masked by buys immediately after hours. No discernable attack is seen throughout night. Significant price swing at turn of day at 0400. At exactly 0700 significant and possible attack begins prior to early trading but significant noise exists. Trading hours of 1/29 Selective brokers lift some restrictions but significant limits exist to buy availability and amount. Significant price drop from possible attack with high volatility through lunch. Significant noise. Possible attack around 1300 lasting possibly until end of day. Reasoning is since some shorts were probably called today, a lower closing price is preferable (conjecture). If this was the case once pressure to buy to keep prices up hit end of day, buying significantly slowed leaving only sell orders “laying bare” the attack(if the price is a battle between buy and sell, removing all buy orders would show only sell). Nighttime of 1/29 Possible continuation of possible attack from closing. More “organic” trade occurs as pressure is released (conjecture). No patterns clearly emerge.
