I think price manipulation can be happen if some one or some institution holding a lot bitcoin. Its hard to make manipulation in bitcoin trade because anyone can make transaction. News about price manipulation maybe just a manipulation from big firm to buying bitcoin at cheap price

Yeah, and it would not be that hard if there are group of whales doing so. It is always called rinse and repeat which they will keep making shit load of money from it and that keeps giving them a huge edge in the market even as things go on.
However, everything that is happening is just some form of emotional manipulation where you get to give people the impression that the market is mooning after loading up as a whale at the bottom, until you offload at the top, do the same process back down and the cycle keeps repeating itself.

When something linger too long in thought, it then becomes the truth that an individual believes in. The issue of price manipulation didn't start today. What we are seeing now is giving credence to the various conspiracies of "whales" that have been spread in the market several times. For me, I try to stay objective to issues and so far there is no irrefutable evidence to show that this manipulation is happening, I rather not force myself to believe in conjectures. Thankfully, investigations have been launched and we just have to wait for the report, review it then pick a side based on that.
The market has been very difficult to predict and unevenly. It is getting harder and harder for new entrants and is there any bad news for this market? Will the whales disappear? It is difficult to express emotions. However, you should be optimistic that it will stabilize the market is the place to live forever for generations.

There was , there is and there will always be institutional manipulation of Bitcoin prices. because bitcoins are in very limited hands. in my opinion Mining pools , exchanges , and big investors are beside bitcoin manipulation.
I think there is, because this involves large transactions involving many people, most likely that there is a system that can manipulate the price of bitcoin, because everything happens online and anonymously. Who can ensure the truth of an information or data that includes prices or transactions is not a hacker? Because price manipulation occurs from time to time, it can cause sales / purchases desired by hackers.

We have seen reports lately that the US Justice Department has opened a criminal probe into alleged price manipulation of

Bitcoin and other digital currencies. We have seen for months now that the Bitcoin price cannot get momentum and as soon

as there are positive signs that it is recovering, then it drops down again. In many of these instances there are no negative

news that would have triggered that downward spiral. There are also no Alt coins with significant growth during these times,

 for us to say that these Alt coins are the trigger behind this. The only logical conclusion for this is that someone or a group of

people are "killing" the correction phase of the Bitcoin price.  Angry

Do you think there are some sinister agenda behind this or is this just Bitcoin whales doing their normal thing?   
yes sure because if you see the chart of bitcoin you will see that whales are the one who can control the value of it they know when and how bitcoin will go up again so its not goood for all newbies so my advise is dont invest if you dont know about cryptocurrency .

the only thing that has a big influence on price manipulation is whales. they are people who have started buying and holding bitcoin when prices are still people and when everyone doesn't care about btc. no wonder that now they have an important role in the movement of btc prices in the market because they possess the most assets. and if the price of bitcoin is affected by supply and demands, it is clear that whales are ready to manipulate prices whenever they want.

I believe there would always be some bitcoin price manipulation going on at the crypto-currencies exchanges as long as there is financial benefits for the group of people who do it, but I believe even in the traditional stocks markets, there is also groups of people who are trying to manipulate certain stocks prices often, so I think this is something that we cannot control in the big financial world.

That's the opinion of what many hold, that some bigger hands are manipulators of the bitcoin price. But I don't think that is correct. Bitcoin price is determine by individual supply and demand.
It's also detremined by positive and negative information. If there are mostly positive informations and prices are going down, then know that someone influential is playing with it.

Recent events have shed light on several cases of BTC price manipulations by cryptocurrency exchanges, emphasizing the global absence of transparent price information. Institutional investors, in order to buy BTC and other cryptocurrencies, have to make sure that the price they are paying effectively represents the underlying supply and demand balance, and is not spoofed by malicious actors.

Well it is just a discussion forum, I wouldn't read too much into it. They just express their opinion and I honestly don't think anybody will just act upon reading somebody else's opinion without any sensible due diligence.

Of course some people are wealthier and some are poorer here, like everywhere else too.

I myself chose neutral for this, maybe on some occasions the price of bitcoin was manipulated by the whales or institution, and at other times the price of bitcoin changed naturally, I did not rule out the possibility of prices being manipulated, because all price changes depend on demand and supply right? bcause demand and supply can be arranged by whales

Of course, there is manipulation in every market but it it easier to do it with cryptos because of the lack of regulations by the government.

Well, I am absolutely sure that bitcoin and other crypto assets were manipulated by institutional traders and not once. I think it is clearly for every experienced trader. Of course, institutional traders use not fair methods of trading and actually retail investors are not protected against any manipulations. As far as I know crypto market is not under control by any organizations or commissions and the total market capitalization is quite small that is why institutional traders can easily manipulate market. On the other hand any other markets are also manipulated but may be much less than crypto market.

Yes there are media's and other philanthropist who are actually manipulating the market price by creating fake news and it is up for the people if they will become knowledgeable or will trade based on their emotions.

It is our own forum all of us are here to share our point of view so I think everyone should share positivity here because many new users use to come here so they can get dishearten with your wrong wording or with your misleading, all of us are well aware of it that bitcoin is power and power never get down, so bitcoin will never get manipulated by anyone we just need to support and help all of us to get better profit.
