Newb here.  Is Bitfinex buying coins?  I've watched hundreds of bitcoins sold at $8200 with only 2-10 available.  What's up with that?

First off, it is not good thinking to assume malevolence before considering various plausible and reasonable non-malevolent explanations.

Second:  There are a few reasonable explanations why you might see many fewer coins on the order book than are being sold at around any specific price including: 1) Many exchanges allow for invisible orders, and Bitfinex is one of them, 2) some buyers will continue to put orders on the books, as they get sold into (and they don’t necessarily want to put a large buy order at one particular price and get all their orders sold into at once (then they would potentially run out of money if the price were to go lower) 3) of course, market orders do not show up on the books, and they can  be ongoingly propping the price at a particular price-point 4) and perhaps margin calls as last of the v8s mentioned.

@CryptoMink
The SEC & CFTC (two major financial regulatory authorities) are set to testify on cryptocurrencies during a U.S. Senate hearing on Tuesday, Feb 6. I bet most (if not all) institutional investors have pulled out of crypto markets ahead of this hearing for risk management purposes.

It was before that, they entered October 30th 2017, when futures got announced. They pumped the price, seduced the sheeple, and now we are going to $2500, if not to $1000...

These people are evil... they're gonna do to bitcoin what they did to gold and silver before. And the sheeple are going to fall for their tricks, as always.

Ask side is thin so we are back above 9000 in no time if just a few start to buy.

Unfortunately, the amount of support and resistance on the books seem to be a reverse indicator. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we do see 9000 soon though.

It is much easier for wall street to have a big score in stocks, bonds than in bitcoin.
if there was some money to be made by shorting, then 67% of maximum gains for shorts are already made.

From my perspective, bitcoin is an unencumbered asset (it has no debt or any other liability).
I simply consider it as a perpetual call option on the network. If you bought higher, then you are out of the money (currently), but since holding period is unlimited, what's the worry?

Just don't use cash that you would need in the foreseeable future to buy btc and you are, potentially, golden (at some point).

So for the first time, tax planning needs to be taken into consideration in my trading strategy.  It makes things much more complicated but it is a nice problem to have.

Why all filthy rich guys are selling hundreds and thousands of BTC at that price? What are they thinking - the end of the world? Or early retirement? What if by the end of the year BTC hits 50K or even 100K $ and they realize how richer they could have been if only waited for several more months? But no, why have 100 mln in several months, while I can have 2-3 mln and retire now. Pathetic

The only reasonable way to do that is to have several million now, and 100 million in several months, as well. 

XD

explorer gets it... ivomm seems lost. or maybe just bitter. Pathetic.
