In USD ...

Over the past few weeks & months, the Mt. Gox price has been ~10% higher than the rest of the market (bitstamp, btc-e, etc...).  Today, bitstamp is as high or just higher than Mt. Gox, and still 10% higher than the rest of the market.

What gives?

pump and dump

Get ready to buy more coins and don't panic sell.  Grin

< 100 BTC is not worth mentioning. Poor souls will always remain poor. Don't miss the failtrain.

keep in mind more and more people are losing confidence with gox, their USD withdrawals issues are a complete disaster with people even now complaining about BTC withdrawal issues. Due to this a lot have been migrating to Bitstamp which is a lot more reliable (so far)

EDIT2: nevermind. My deposit confirmed successfully  Grin

Maybe fear of getting goxxed by Stamp.

EDIT: Or maybe successful arbitration between China and Japan is bringing Gox price down.

This is exactly what arbitrage looks like. Compare the charts of Bitstamp and China the last 4 days. It's obvious what is going on. This is very healthy for the markets. When everything gets out of whack, it creates more instability.

For casual buyers/seller yes,but its the bad platform for day traders, poor api, unreliable engine, and not fully protected against ddos..I really hope they improve these technical issues.

How Ripple Rips you: "The founders of Ripple Labs created 100 billion XRP at Ripple's inception. No more can be created according to the rules of the Ripple protocol. Of the 100 billion created, 20 billion XRP were retained by the creators, seeders, venture capital companies and other founders. The remaining 80 billion were given to Ripple Labs. Ripple Labs intends to distribute and sell 55 of that 80 billion XRP to users and strategic partners. Ripple Labs also had a giveaway of under 200 million XRP (0.002% of all XRP) via World Community Grid that was later discontinued.[29] Ripple Labs will retain the remaining 25 billion"

No one thinks this is related to the delayed coinbase buy orders?

Just bought 17 coins and paid 60$ fee´s... that sucks  Angry

They also cut 110$ from tranfering my 10.000€ into 13490$ instead of 13600$ as their linked exchange price list was. Support does not answer, asked 2 days ago why.

Seriously wtf is wrong with this exchange. Its like there is only a buy button and it can only go up. Other exchanges go down $30 and it goes down $1. Then it goes up $20. f you try to trade here you get screwed.

The other exchanges got way ahead of Stamp.  Much of the down action on Gox and BTCChina was arbitrage realigning the prices.
