14 hours so far, it's not changed.  I've seen it do this for such a long time.

It's not that there isn't many trades happening, it's just that a lot more trades go on during a crash or a fast rise in price.

Super thin market that's easily moved (mostly by bots) coupled with margin trading and short selling is indeed a fun combination for anyone wanting to manipulate the market and make a lot of money quickly.  Anyone margin trading bitcoins is in for a world of hurt, just like on Sunday.
