If what you said is true, Bitcoin Swami (damn, I like you name--not tongue-in-cheek), then if the price was rising fast, would it be because more people are buying than selling? I not a market guy, hence the question. I'm an image guy.

Thanks for the link, Exonumia, but my post was tongue-in-cheek, a clue being the type of image I accompanied with the post.

There is a buyer for every seller, er, more accurately the exact same number of coins are bought as are sold.

Grrr ...

+ Why is the price falling?
- Cause people are selling.
+ Why are people selling?
- Cause they think the bitcoin is worth less than it is traded at now.
+ Why don't they trust in bitcoin anymore?
- Cause they read the bad news.
+ What bad news?

If I wouldn't be in with more % of my personal belongings than I consider reasonable, I would buy now. What do the traders know what I don't know? I guess that's the OP's question.

What the traders know is that the momentum is going downward (conference fizzled, end of the month, end of the week, miners have to pay for their rigs, yadda yadda yadda). They also know exactly when they'll come in to buy again.

It's more profitable to buy and sell coins then it is to mine them.You buy at 6-7 dollars that drives the price back up then sell at 11-12 dollars and that drives the price back down and you keep doing it over and over

actually best thing to do is buy and hold for years

THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!!

Oh wait, Imma let you finish, I was just on my way to CampBX to buy some more BTC while the price is low, while the rest of you look for reasons to have heart attacks.

Then I'll be rich and you'll be poor AND having heart attacks.

Crap, my master plan.  Good job, Mr. Bond.

There is an artificial conspiracy at work. Hoards of people are selling at a secret undisclosed time, while other are planning to come in and buy at secret undisclosed prices.  Cheesy


Why does Bitrebel have 65+ Ignores?
Because Bitrebel says things that some people do not want YOU to hear.
