Could be jumping the gun here, but is Coinbase down?

EDIT: It now reads this: Coinbase is currently offline

No cached version is available.

The most likely causes:

The server is down for maintenance
There may be a network problem
The site may be experiencing excessive load
Retry for a live version of the site

We'll post updates on Twitter if the problem persists

Before coinbase' offline, some bears swear that the dump will begin in 2-3 hours. It seems each time any exchange got any problem, bears will always know it ex ante. Are they almighty god or did they attack the exchanges on their own?

It is highly likely that the same group hacked the bitstamp and DDOSed the coinbase. To manipulate the price and earn maximum profit, criminals can do anything such as trolling, stealing and hacking.

But the bottomline is: don't offend the national interests of the USA. If some terrorists hacked the nasdaq and NYSE, I assume that the US navy seals will hunt them to death.

Currently, bitcoin is a small cap market and Uncle Sam could't care less about it. But if one day it grows to more than $500 bn large, all the hackers will be sentenced just as terrorists.

Have to say I'm surprised I didn't have to tweak the scaling factor between Stamp and Finex. Quite similar market depths there.

I'm impressed by how stable the finex feed is, no more missing data segments, yet.

I wonder if those problems with the stamp feed were some kind of signal or precursor?

Stamp was actually providing data but it was old, out-of-date data and typically the same old, out-of-date data each time. My interpretation is that they had load balancing caches of some kind and one of them was not updating correctly.

I'm not sure what that said about the state of Stamp but given that people use those feeds to trade and it didn't seem to be that high a priority to get it fixed, I have to think it didn't say anything good. I suspect the rapid price rise over the past two years has put some people a little out of their depth rather quickly.

I'm still expecting a plunge to as low as $220, but I'm buying anyway. These prices are just too low to pass up. I just don't think there was enough volume in the bounce off of $255 for it to be a final bottom. Worst case scenario is cascading margin calls that drop us to $200. Unlikely but possible. Ironically Stamp's suspended operations has given me and I suspect others time to pad our margins.  It also halted some panicked people.

A successful retest of $255 where it holds on even higher volume means a very likely end of the bear market, but it's way too soon to call it. Best case scenario is that Coinbase went down due to overwhelming buying. I doubt that's really the case but it's possible. If people really were naked short-selling, then there will be (and possibly is) a scramble to find coins in order to cover.

The least likely scenario is we go straight up from here. If that happens, a lot of short positions will be force liquidated causing a massive spike with a major retracement. If that happens, go margin short as close to the top as you can and then cover on the retracement.

Very optimistic, but I had the same thought as well. It's possible, but either way we will probably hear about it in the next 24 hours.

Yes. No guarantee it stays there, though.

That's not exactly how it would play out. If we retest, it should be on lower volume or it's liable to break through $250.

The away I see it, if we don't get a higher volume follow thru on this swing downward, the trend will continue up.
