unfinished auction

it looks like an "unfinished auction". this specific pattern occurs quite often.

here's an example:

- market was 2732.25 / 2732.50. 58 contracts traded on the bid and 130 contracts on the offer. then the market went up to 2732.50 / 2732.75. 55 contracts traded at the bid, but nothing was traded at the offer.

time & sales would show the following at 2732.50: 130 as buys (green) and 55 as sells (red)

easiest way to see this pattern is by a footprint chart.
