I'm wondering whether it has to do with when the monthly figure is updated. This wouldn't help, if it's done daily. However, if it's done every
week or so, it might be the monthly stats for the previous month.
OTOH, it could be that ATS is part of a conspiracy of some sort, and we need to be on our guard (j/k, if it isn't obvious).
