For those ready to call me a troll, fuck off.

Reasons why bitcoin will continue its fall:

1) Nothing new or exciting is happening (since silkroad really).

2) Nothing new or exciting is even visible on the horizon.

3) News media pays no attention (why would they?).

3) Information and knowledge about bitcoin is as a result isolated (to a few forums).  

4) Bitcoin owners realise this and are selling at a loss (reducing the currency value).


The aformentioned reasons permeates and constitute the perception of bitcoin right now. This will only change if bitcoin is able to duplicate what silkroad did. Bitcoin sudddenly made what was once impossible possible. That is the imminent future of bitcoin as far as I can see. It must open up new fields of (online) possibilities that no other currency can even touch. One such field would be online gambling without going into details (pretty obvious).

Ask yourself one question - why up rather than down?


Good luck and happy trading!

Agree

Agree

Agree

Well not actually: a lot of people out of forums knows of bitcoins. But due to point 1 & 2 noone move in

4) Bitcoin owners realise this and are selling at a loss (reducing the currency value). [/i]

Not true, a lot of people here can earn even at 1-2$: there will be millions of BTC mined or bought at sub 1$. And the market deep of last weeks is really low (even for BTC).

Is correct that now it can only go down (and with a 3 days of bank closed is even worse) and so will do for some week probably (not at this rate I hope). But I think that in future (not a week or a month maybe 3-4 months) it shall go up again.
Remember that bitcoin is only 2 years old, normally investments and commodities are considered over a range of years, but overall we are over the level BTC have 4 months ago, and to compare a 6 month value the grow is of 400%. And we have more BTC around so value and prices are both incremented.
Looking at the chart I don't see a so bad situation:

Specially confronted with some other:

Dang... It hit almost $6 today.... will this drop ever end?  ~$2 in 2 days .... what the heck is going on?  Is everyone pulling out?  This feels like a big sham!

Just now?  Welcome to pyramids 101!  Bitcoin may not be a sham, but the pyramid built on top of it sure is.

If you invested dollars into bitcoins I thank you for my free graphics cards, power supplies, electricity and spending cash.  Still optimistic about cashing out into a dead cat bounce -- why haven't you doubled down at these price levels and reduced your cost per coin?

No 3 days of holiday in USA = no new money in exchange.
Banks again open and we are now at 6.8
