There is something weird going on in the BTC market:

 
The volume constantly decreases, while the price remains unchanged...
What does it mean ? Are we seeing market stagnation ? Or is the bitcoin overpriced perhaps ? Or maybe large speculators wants to fool us into thnking so ?

Can somebody with knowledge of currency markets put this in perspective ?

If anyone with coins thinks they are overvalued they can sell them right now, they are not, so that's not what's happening.

Fool us? Into thinking fewer trades are happening on mtgox? That's actually true, so we can't be fooled into thinking it.

People's relative desire for BTC compared to USD has not been changing much in the last few days, that's all.

Think about a very simple case. Person A has some red rocks and Person B has some blue rocks. A needs to have 2 blue rocks for some purpose, but generally prefers to have blue. Person B thinks they are roughly equal in value (since he just puts them in a bag hits people). So they trade 2 rocks on the first day. Now both have what they want. If nothing changes for them, they'll never trade again.

The more people involved the less likely it is for volume to drop to zero, but the idea is the same. Trades only happen when two people disagree about their marginal preference for the things involved. Once they happen the tension is relieved and another trade doesn't happen until there are pair of disagreers.

It's probably a combination of the previously-mentioned dark pools (previously-open orders moved to dark) and the closing of a russian bitcoin investment site (bitcointrade.biz):

If the site is truthful it had considerable money tied in the bitcoin market, but has now ceased operation.

Silly bitcoiners, trying to tie events to lack of bitcoin volume when there may be no correlation.

@kiba: you are right

There are many other financial markets displaying very low volume before breaking out either way. this is just normal and so is trading bitcoins on MtGox or anywhere else

Always do your own due diligence & consult your financial advisor. Never invest unless you can afford to lose your entire investment.
