Why settle for the lesser evil?

I noticed this (and took the screenshots) last night, there was a period about 11.30 to at least 00:10 GMT last night, in which the price displayed by the MTGox feed was different from the price quoted on the website by up to +-$3/btc

I noticed the feed went down yesterday at about mid-afternoon so I wonder is this a technical fault. In any case it is really worrying.



Also, there were some huge price swings while this was happening. Are bots trading off the feed data? Could that explain this crazy swing:



Has anyone else noticed this? Can we get some comment from MtGox on this issue?

I see that this happen time to time. I think it is simply delay on websocket interface. I have no idea how many connection that websocket interface has, but I believe it can be in thousands.

I don't know whether your explanation for the fault is accurate. At least it didn't seem to me that it was a delay. I saw a half hour of the price being up to $3 more than the feed and then within minutes being $3 less (of a different price) - this six dollar swing was happening while the price was spiking on the feed (as shown in the image above).

This is a pretty serious issue no matter what is causing it. And right now MtGox is down again. This really doesn't make one confident of trading there Sad
