Guess that last rise was too much for mt gox. They seem to have placed a halt to trading.

Does anyone know their halting policy? Or is it just when their servers start smoking?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.

It's happened every day for the last 3 days when there is a build-up at any price level that is actually being traded.  Usually snaps back within 15 minutes or so.

I love it how Tradehill follows Mt. Gox like a loyal puppy. Really, look at the stats.



There is no "market" in reality. Mt. Gox is the market because other exchanges don't seem to have a will of their own.

This is of course natural. A bitcoin is worth what someone will pay for it. If someone is willing to pay X amount at mt gox, that makes bitcoins worth that amount everywhere. It is silly to think the two exchanges would have different prices. Then someone could make a killing buying at one and selling at the other.

If I had to guess, it's people placing a huge number orders for the smallest amount possible.

TradeHill doesn't set prices at all.
There are people making good money off of cross exchange arbitrage.
This keeps the prices pretty even.

I am able to put in orders, but they aren't getting executed. They are just in queue. And the price hasn't moved an iota in the last 15 minutes. Definitely paused.
