I believe that the Bitcoin price increase has something to do with the fact that Christmas is only 46 days away! Was no one else expecting this as a result of the economic BOOM of all social classes going out to purchase their Christmas Presents ready for the event. I had already predicted to myself that the bitcoin price will increase around November 1st and will then go back down at around March 1st next year.

Bitcoin don't give a shit.

Read back for the last 5 years and see people looking for correlations. If there was one you would be rich.

Bitcoin is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get !!

I definitely didn't expect it. To be more precise, I didn't even expected the price to reach the $300 price level this year. This just shows that no one can predict what Bitcoin will do. We can only guess and that's it. Some say it was China, which I think as well, and some others say it might have to do with the FBI auctioning the last SilkRoad coins. Whatever it was, I enjoyed it to the fullest.

There was not a single indicator for the price increase really, some say China but we can pinpoint it to something in particular. Bitcoin price can be easily manipulated if some big shots enter the scene. They can actually buy a huge % of it in a day and create a huge wave.

I've being saying that Bitcoin will only flourish when it can become a standard for a particular niche. Perhaps its destiny is forcing Western Union out of business or something similar, but only when something like that happens (and demand increases because it'll be really needed for something and not just to speculate with) only then it will skyrocket.

Tension has been building a while before the rise actually. There was more and more pressure against the 250 barrier and it was also quite due for a run actually..

People expected it, but were scared to go in because of the long stagnant period.

No-one? lol plenty have been expecting it, in fact it was a bit overdue from my point of view. I think by no-one you mean, you didn't expect it.

Fasten your seatbelts its only beginning.

I had already predicted to myself that the bitcoin price will increase around November 1st and will then go back down at around March 1st next year.

I think a lot of people expected a break up to around $360 (where Bitcoin is right now), and then some sort of correction. Indeed, the shorts started piling up at this price point on Finex, and no doubt on the Chinese exchanges also....which is precisely why Bitcoin shot up to $505. A great big dirty fucking short squeeze.

Thing to remember is that Bitcoin is an unregulated market, and you can bet your bottom dollar that their is hooky moneky business going on, on most of the big exchanges, especially those that deal with leverage. The market makers had the buying power, to liquidate the shorts, which pushed up the market way higher than it should have went, whilst the Market Makers sold their coins into the parabolic rise, and are now probably buying back now....or who knows, maybe they plan to be buy back lower still?

In the end of 2014 everyone was telling, that the price is dropping because people are cashing out to buy Christmas presents for they loved ones.

I've seen a lot speculating about it. The thing is bitcoin price escalated too quickly and thus next to impossible it raised to $500 in just a matter of 2 days. So the result is bitcoin price had to drop again and stay at the $300+ line. I yhink wveryone else is expecting for the price to rise again, maybe at the end of november and by 2016.

Everybody expected a price increase before the next halving.
They just weren't sure about the timing.  Smiley

Just to echo the sentiment, I think a LOT of people were expecting the price to rise.  It's just that very few real indicators exist as to when that might happen and how much.

I'd further go on to predict that the price will rise again.  And I predict the price will fall again.  And rise.  And fall.  And rise.  (I'll end with that one, but you get the picture).

I just can't tell you when.

Like I said, how much of that price increase beyond pretty much where we are now, was due to shorts getting squeezed?

Go take a look at the 12K BTC short position crash on Finex, that accompanied the rally up.

That is what drove the ridiculous run up for sure, and why it came crashing back down so heavily (once the shorts were all out).

A lot of people expect the price to rise, we just don't know exact.y when it will happen

But it's pretty much inevitable that it will rise unless Bitcoin will not be used by anyone.
