I can't honestly claim to watch EORBF religiously, but I think zero volume by 3 pm on any day is quite unusual, at least recently.  I note that there was quite a gap showing on Level II and wonder if it was just a matter of news getting out that something is pending, with buyers unwilling to shell out higher prices till they test the waters and sellers holding their ground because they are waiting for ignition.  Whatever the explanation, it's interesting.  By the way, I just called the plant at Cap Chat.  Unfortunately, I don't speak French... maybe all the Anglos were out getting their pictures taken in piles of white powder... snow or HPA?  Why doesn't one of our Francophone people call and ask what is going on at the plant this afternoon, and if anything happened at 4 am.
