While they have not formally announced it, BTC-e recently stated to me that they are no longer dealing with US banks or customers.

This would explain the lower price of BTC on that exchange as USD would be relatively more scarce there.

i know a few months ago they dropped the UK £..

but if they are going to drop the dollar... i see MTGox 2.0 saga occur, so time to get ur bitcoins out before your playing with fake dollars. and everyone starts crashing the fake btc-e dollar market..

remember selling bitcoins on a faked dollar market with no actual dollar support for deposits or withdrawls.. is not real trading..

stupid people thought they were getting bargain bitcoins for $100 at mtgox when the other markets were are $300-$500... little did they know that there were not enough real bitcoins to cover them fake purchases.

That's actually really bad news for BTC. Do you kno why that's the case? If it happens in the near future, I can see a negative impact on the overall price.

although volume is mid range. most of the bitcoin price averagers/estimators never really took btc-e seriously..

but lets hope the naive traders dont try dropping coinbase, bitstamp or bitfinex, based purely on BTC-E fake action.
luckily when mtgox crashed due to their dollar issues... the other exchanges stopped sheep following mtgox, and thus avoided all of the exchanges going down to $100.. it was kind of impressive that pretty much overnight peoples idea's changed and adapted toignore mtgox

I think insiders understand the nature of bitcoin exchanges and how some run fractional reserve. it would have a short term unpleasant effect, but long term i don't see a major issue. eventually, someone will come up with a solution to this problem. supernet's instadex is attempting to fix this with a decentralized exchange service. we'll see if it is executed....currently in beta testing

Wrong. Stop spreading nonsense. BTC-e is nothing compared to MtGox, nothing! MtGox was the leader of it's time. BTC-e is minor compared to Bitstamp, Bitfinex or Huobi. Compare the weekly volumes and you shall see why. I never understood why anyone would even trade on BTC-e. They seem shady at best to me.

Where else does everyone trade? I don't have any USD in btc-e but this makes me a bit uneasy.  I went to btc-e orininally for the bitcoin/litecoin/feathercoin/primecoin trading, however only half those exist there now. I do have a cryptsy account but have never traded anything but alts there.

I trade on Bitfinex. I dont fund through there but i do margin trade on it. They allow short trading as well so not sure if that's an option for you but I prefer to make money no matter which way the market is going.

Why would you want to trade on BTC-e in the first place? They have no big volume, they prices are lower and they are not transparent.
It is like 2nd grade exchange there are many better services if you want to trade in USD.

Btc-e was earlier used for transactions and as a currency in US banks also. USA had understood that bitcoins are important for them so they had put it as permitted in banks for customers, but seeing some cases of kidnaps and bitcons being declared illegal in Taiwan, they had stopped dealing in bitcoins. USA has been a huge market for bitcoins and this is a loss to bitcoins currency. Let's hope banks in USA start dealing in bitcoins too.

btc always used to be lower priced i guess due to being seen as "shady" and has always been mostly uk/european/russian users, this isnt a big deal

i know a few months ago they dropped the UK £..

but if they are going to drop the dollar...
they aren't dropping $ and they only dropped £ because it had low volume and there was no point, uk users can still send money there with no problems, their bank forces them to not deal with us customers which really means us banks, americans can buy on coinbase or where ever and send btc there to trade if they want to
So wait.... what will happen to all my BTC and LTC that I have on BTC-E?

Can I still send over my BTC to Coinbase?
your btc and ltc are fine, you just cant send or withdraw fiat with us banks due to bullshit regulations

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

BTC-E has a very good track record so I'm pretty sure you will still have access to them. However, they could turn into Mt.Gox 2.0 so I'd move them somewhere else just to be safe.

Mt.Gox was the biggest exchange of its time. Their volume was unparalleled. BTC-e handles 2.5% of all Bitcoin exchange volume it is nothing in comparison to Mt.Gox.
What is positive about them is fact that they are working since July 2011 without problems.
