How do ol boy, quite a morning on the markets aye?

Well do pull up a chair, light a Havana, and pour yourself a snifter of brandy......in this thread we share charts for the here and now, share speculating strategies and generally shoot the shit. Leave the economic arguments at the door, we care only for market data, indicators and trends as any true speculators should in this thread.

So down to it....

This mornings an interesting one, strong down trend manifesting itself on the charts:


I'll continue to observe this as it goes through out the day, but my bets are that with no SEPA inflows, a glut on supply side and low volumes this trend will continue for a day or two....

What say you fellow speculators?

Trend has been broken to the upside, MACD smiles upon us......



Suspect this will eventually break down, but interesting for the afternoon.

Awww, you mentioned the R word! We're jinxed now, SELL SELL SELL!  Tongue

It's a minor up that breaks the mornings downward trend, orders are quite thin in the current range, so it'll have to break these in either direction before we can say it's going anywhere.

Cool man. Not going to criticize you for taking a safe gamble for fun and (miniscule) profit.

When my wife learned about this hobby and my re-ignited trading interest she was all like, "wait, you're excited about playing with less money than this date night is costing us?" but then she was all like, "cheap entertainment I guess..."

At this point my target is either an ATI 7 series card equivalent to a 580GTX or so or the 580 in the first place.  Timeframe is around January.  Let's see how it goes.

Oh yeah, definitely eyeing this one with a massive bear bias short term.  Money briefly flowed back in, but that appears to be trending down again.  Evening could very well be interesting, and I'm prepared to buy.  Or sell the 2 newly minted coins, as soon as they're at mtgox. =)

We also have to keep in mind ONE early adopter wanting a Porsche trumps all the charting and prognosticating we're doing.  90% of all bitcoins are still MIA and that's a massive stick to beat any TA with.

Yeah, tend to agree there, some people see the charts as the sum total of all information on the market, but there's no point ignoring something just because you can't chart it.

Speaking of which... Smiley

There appears to be a pennant forming for the evening:



But this may be nothing as I'm quite happy to admit I'm an enthusiastic amateur in this. I wouldn't even trust my own advice!  Tongue

Yup!

Not that I didn't want to run a mile from Gox like everyone else at the time, but there are a few reality's that prevent us all from doing so, namely volume and also real-time data via the websockets. I haven't seen similar offers from any of the competition, and no other exchange has yet filled the void.

But this will change, just not at the rate people have been expecting it. I'm nominating CampBx to be the second large exchange.

Tradehill have wasted the advantage given to them by the whole gox escapade, not to mention the challenges faced by their being so late to the game meaning an underdeveloped service.

CampBx has too much graphics and screen changes for me.


I'm just interested in seeing the price change and orders being placed.
I'm interested in placing orders quickly and efficiently.
With Mtgoxlive, MtGox is almost perfect.


The history data on mt gox is easy to read and log.
The interface is fast.
I can have multiscreens up at once.
The volume is high.
The security is looking nice.
Fund transfers in and out are easy.

I'm a MtGox fan.

I think CampBX will end up being the exchange of choice for people in the US once they get their trading API online.

Hope you good people are running short today and still possessing the shirt on your back, looks like we're in for quite a ride:

Bitcoin Technical Analysis: 13.8 - 12.5 $ are accumulation / buying zones

12.5 is about to be busted.

IMO, lack of SEPA is helping the trend, and when those funds arrive they will be too late to turn the tide. What's also scary is that the last time we saw ten the bid wall was massive, this time around:
4721 BTC Bid 10

:-/

At the moment, no clear channel as such, just what looks like an upper trendline:


But it's not all bad news, the ex-head of E-business citigroup is opening an exchange:

Quote
In the late ’90s, he says, Pankewitz was the head of eBusiness for Citigroup Private Bank and his team was among the first to build a digital banking solution for high net worth individuals in Europe and also worked on Forex trading systems at Citigroup.

When individuals of this level of experience feel it's worth a punt, you gotta take notice.
