For your reading pleasure.
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/bitcoin-spikes-70-month-nobody-203526770.html

Not very informative, but still fun to see.

Many people in the comments section seem to be pro bitcoin and/or defending it from the usual Buttcoiner comments.

I support a decentralized & unregulatable ledger first, with safe scaling over time.

Good points on the article and had some valuable possible reasons and yet there are still the so called "Buttcoiner's" on the comment section which I really don't get how they get to live with those brains... There was also an interesting article some where along the line of the article regarding: Bitcoin to be 6th largest reserve currency by 2030: Research

It's funny that they put those relatively hateful tweets as part of the article, where they practically flame bitcoin for no reason at all.
The only positive thing i have read there is " so there may be a genuine upswing in interest from that region."
Why can't they write something like bitcoin is on the path to recovery or something, instead of attributing surge to "ignorant speculators ", it's not like we
didn't have massive amount of positive news...

The title of the article has a typo, it's supposed to read "Bitcoin spikes 70% in a month; CNBC has no idea why"

I don't think the sample tweets were very negative. I think it's good that there isn't a single or obvious reason for the media to attribute to the rise - it leaves them without a "oh, this is the only reason this is happening" explanation.

The "why?" is best attributed to the lead up to the block reward halving next July-ish. Possibly prompted by the Liquid sidechain going live.

No one knows why the U.S. Fed declined to raise interest rates or stop rebuying assets last month triggering a spike in the price of bitcoin.

Nobody knows why, offcourse there is some manipulation, but bitcoin was HEAVILY underrated this past year, the network couldnt be maintained for long with that ridiculous low price, regarding the economy and power that has been put in the protocol.

Call it Wei Li since it's a Chinese exchange. Wink Idk how to think about this seeing almost a hundred dollar gain while I sleep. It will pop soon, just being realistic.  Also, that  article seems to be funny. It's probably FOMO and Chinese who's causing this.

There are loads of speculation about China and the largest Ponzi scheme MMM pushing the price, but there are no proof of that. People are sucking this from their ass and selling it for facts. If this was massive adoption from a certain region, we would have seen something posted already.

I guess it is just a pump before the Silkroad coin auction.  Roll Eyes

I'm wondering to which extent will this affect the price, taking into account that USD Exchange Trade Volume is over $35M now and the volume of Bitcoins which will be auctioned is $19M.

This price increase in great for Bitcoin. More and more people are getting interested in Bitcoin and the demand for bitcoin has increased a lot. I think that this is why the price has increased.  The price does not automatically just rise so rapidly. More and more people are using Bitcoin in day to day life and people are also realising Bitcoin is a good investment and the currency of the future.

Recent bitcoin price increases have reignited enthusiasm in buying bitcoin. BTCC is confident this trend will continue. As such, we are pleased to announce that we now accept direct deposits.
 
Customers now need only log in, click on “Account,” then “Fund,” and then select the “Bank Deposit” option to fund their BTCC accounts through their bank accounts. All customers who have Chinese bank accounts will be able to make direct deposits through ATM transfers or online banking.
 
BTCC will stop accepting customer deposits through agents on November 15.

It is great to see. I wonder if they act negative because they are jealous or just don't understand it.
Anyway, I hope articles continue to stay positive and boost the price. We need a boost before the next halving otherwise bad stuff might end up happening. Then we'll be in trouble.

the reason was already greatly explained here http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-11-02/reason-bitcoins-recent-surge-revealed

and the why it's pretty obvious to me, the news about the vat-free alone, can cause this spike easily, let all the other recent good news

I agree with you Amph but what has the VAT sentence to do with the chinese buying so much?
The VAT free alone should have boosted the EU market while everything started in China.

i mean they are two great news that had a great impact on the market, they don't necessarily need to have something to do with each other, to help bitcoin

i'm just saying that the vat-free news alone can move something, let alone the whole chinese story
