The ticker has been showing an ask of 15.1001 for the last 5 minutes, but the order book shows lowest ask of 17+

WTF?

Free bitcoins! What are the chances that loads of people will exploit it, and they'll end up doing another rollback Smiley

Believe me, I tried to get some discounted btc.

Seemed like a great opportunity to arb against Tradehill, but that doesn't work so well when the Tradehill sale executes but the Gox buy doesn't.

Whenever the US Government wants to start regulating they'll have plenty of reason.

Still broken.

Also, all trading sites I tried show wrong bid/ask, so the API is broken too.

EDIT: probably the ticker on the trade page is based on the API too.

Presumably this has happened because the order book has stopped reconciling, but they carried on taking orders. So the question is - when it starts working, how are they going to match up all the overlaps fairly?

Why do people still use MtGox? Memory of a gold fish?

Volume, presumably.

This is the Bitcoin address you are looking for.

How is it that bids are sometimes greater than asks on Mt. Gox?

Here's from the orderbook api 5 minutes ago.

See how the highest bid is greater than the three lowest asks?  How can this happen?

bid/ask  price  quantity
------- --------- -----------
bid    16.839  33.3125
bid    16.87   0.16
bid    16.9211 5.94033484
ask    16.91   0.32
ask    16.92045    1.9435
ask    16.92109    9.59792994
ask    16.92839    0.2

It's not just a flakey API either.  Here's the Mt. Gox UI, offering to sell coins for more than the cost to buy them.

Unfortunately those trades never execute.

It gives me decent numbers to quote from.
But as the quote system is buggy, I'll be damned to actually trust the trade system.

The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don't agree with.

Confirmed, my trades aren't go through either.

But, just like mining, it's not very hard to send your BTC to another exchange and fire off trades pretty much instantly. 

I just sent all my "sell for the day" coins from gox to TH and it took about 15-20 min to get there, about 2 seconds to sell them.
