I was just wondering the same thing, something is fishy, no one could possibly be buying enough to rationalize that

I think the best way to trade a thin market like this is to have standing sell orders at ridiculously high prices and buy orders at ridiculously low prices and just wait for some fools to come along who absolutely HAVE to buy/sell a large number of coins at once.

There are 2500 btc at 7.20 at mtgox.  There is no reason why it should have jumped to $16.  I have a feeling something is happening to gox again

It probably showed a PLN trade as an USD one erroneously.

The trades upto 7.4 seemed real with lots of volume backing them up.

Yuck, I'm seeing the past 24-hour history at $4.10... ffs, are we bein' serious here? o_O

The only spike I see is up to $5.00 for a few trades... am I reading the right graph? Or are we really trading Bitcoin at $4? o_O

edit: OK, it must've been a mis-load or something. The graph I saw only had a handful scatter of points, so it must've been some different data. Nevermind me. =P

I guess its time to point out that in reality there is no reason why anyone would be profiting except MtGox.
- There are no rules
- They completely control the bitcoin economy
- Market Makers do this all the time, they are most likely controlling orders and putting through a)friends and "important" orders b) Their personal orders c)whatever is best for them and them alone.

I want to see the code that processes the orders.
Even if this is just a graph error, there has been fishy market activity for a while (most say since the hack and crash).

The spikes shown on MTGoxlive appear to be in error.  The increase slowly bringing it back into the $6.80 territory as of the time of this post seems real though.  It's an unusually high volume of buy orders but there's no pattern.  I think people were watching for the price to stop dropping after lots of exchange accounts likely got logged into via the forum hack and I think it's over as well.  I don't have a great memory but it started dropping from $11 to like $5 before even Sept 3rd let alone the 9th, right?  Anyway, whatever was going on appears to be mostly over as far as everyone can tell so they're buying up BTC as quickly as possible since it's likely to return to its more normal $10 price pretty quickly.
