i would say there is no one single event causing this one, but here are some idea's

1) the standard summer slump for retail stocks, so investors are looking for something to play with before moving it back to retail stocks ready for christmas period.

2) US EU and UK governments acknowledging bitcoins existence

3) mining difficulty rise, causing an initial drop in BTC compared income. thus a push on raising the exchange rate to ensure miners keep to a maintained lifestyle

4) more bitcoin related conferences, meetups, buttonwood style exchanges happening this year, compared to previous years

5) least likely, but it adds to the cauldron of reasons.. more wars declared causing people to question money spending by government and looking for alternatives

nah,

most 'drugies' convert into bitcoin and most dealers convert out of bitcoin. so there is not much impact.

the more impactful things are when people buy into bitcoin and don't sell

The price goes up because Bitcoin is amazing. It goes down because people temporarily got too excited about how amazing Bitcoin is.

6) Many people were waiting on the sidelines to get into bitcoin but they wanted to see the bubble deflate first. After hitting $65 some people just couldn't wait any longer and decided to buy which ignited a chain reaction lasting until this day.

Feedback from the mtgox liquidity crisis, nothing else.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

^ This.

Ignore all the short-term thinking and other small-mindedness.

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.

That's the same as saying that the crash from $266 happened because of DDoS, nothing else.

Not really, there were DDoS attacks all the way back during the rally which hadn't had any dramatic effect.

What remains is Technical Analysis which acts as an amplifier for volatility.
