EDIT: I'm a miner, I won't sell my bitcoins for less that $10 EVER. Because then if I did I would be loosing some serious money. I'm already almost breaking even at these current rates, we need it to go up to about 35 and stay there for a few weeks so it can go back to being fair for the miners. I think we control the market for the most part, but right now we all need money for so many things that we are sucking out of the system, but once all our things are paid off, and we are all making money we will defiantly put money right back into the economy, and use the help of the new-age "littlepeople" so hence we create new "jobs". We're job creators of the future, which is what the government wants right ?
You realize that the price of bitcoins is irrelevant to what is "fair" for miners right? Difficulty adjusts so that if mining becomes unfair and miners drop out, mining will become profitable again. Price increases, more miners add equipment, difficulty rises mining is less profitable. In any case, at some point in the future it is likely that mining will only be profitable (no matter what price bitcoins are) to people with economies of scale, cheap electricity and/or unpaid for resources (botnets and the like)
Just because you won't sell your coins below $10, doesn't mean others won't.
Personally, I'd rather see stability than either big price increases or decreases, but I think we likely have months/years before that is the case.
