    • Hi Shuai,

      Thanks for pointing this out.

      There was a recent increase of old stock coming on up for sale on the Forest Glen market. This was preceded with several high price outlier sales in 2019-2020. With the low transaction volume there is very little data for the algorithm to adequately fit these two extremes.

      Forest Glen is classified as low confidence due to low sales volume and high error rate. We will get our team to investigate options to reduce the impact of outliers in this isolated instance.
