Lag appeared to be dropping rapidly a couple minutes ago. Fell form 30+ and settled around 28 and is hovering.

Is it possible the lag is caused by too many people updating their orders simultaneously?

It would need to be a hell of a spike in order changing.

I don't know what percentage of orders are short-lived, in that they are either market orders or Bid or Asks who almost immediately get filled.

I suspect most orders are short-lived - just a hunch.

Down to 25.50... and we get another big seller.

Ah, yes, I believe that's the cause right there. When a large market sell order is executed, the matching engine needs to confirm that the USD is in the account for every single bid getting filled.

As someone mentioned earlier, new hardware won't fix this (Gox is supposedly using SSD now). It's the code but at least Gox is planning on fixing this soon.

1. Normal quotes (i.e. BTC/LTC instead of LTC/BTC, BTC/NMC instead of NMC/BTC, etc.)
2. Transparency
3. FIX Protocol
4. Liquidity Rebates
5. Professional trading platform
6. Margin trading optional (i.e. leverage, gearing)
7. Shorting (no naked shorting)
8. Every possible pair combination (i.e, BTC/LTC, BTC/NMC, NMC/LTC or LTC/NMC)
9. >99% server uptime
10. Free altcoins for registering.  Grin

Edit: for clarity

Eventually, we're going to single digits again.

Ahh... I wish we did. I could buy the entire mining supply of bitcoin with the proceeds of my daily arbitrage operations.

There are fundamental reasons why BTC/USD could trade in the single digits in the not so distant future.
I'm hoping it hits +$300 first but ... meh.

someone on btc-e said SR had moved a load of coins, could be that.

SR seems to have been selling as well.

Wonder if they knew about the dump, then ddoss panic, then rebut...


I don't see SR really trying to cash out millions of dollars into fiat.

It makes sense,I read somewhere last week that SR had exposed their IP address. Maybe they are taking precautions by moving BTCs around?

Also Prolexic is getting hammered big time, it's not only MtGox but other financial institutions as well like TDAmeritrade.

So, I will ask again, $300 today, or we chill in the $250-270 range?

Very good chance of 300, yes.

~$320 sounds like a nice price point.  Wink

Edit: Anything past this would be crossing the Rubicon, IMO.

Poking sleeping bears with a short stick isn't wise.
