I think you also have to put things into the context of how the year has been for guys running money.
With any kind of long bias you are looking like a million bucks(pun intended) compared to the start of August.
I imagine even more than guys on vacation that players want to book these performance numbers for the year and there just is not much incentive for risk taking this week.
Good time to practice strategy for an expectation of an ultra low volatility regime.
