Supply and demand causes the prices in the market, while the MMs make small profits on the spread. However, “Marking the close" / “painting the tape” is a form of market manipulation. The practice involves attempting to influence the price of a security by executing purchase or sale orders during the Trading day or at / near the close of normal trading hours. It artificially inflates the closing price for the security and can affect charts.
