Just saw a massive buy rally up to 3.20 instantly which is the single biggest percentage rally i have seen in my times of watching MTGox yet. What does everyone figure is going on now and are we headed up or down?

I have to think someone with a lot of cash and coins might have just hit the buy button on an order instead of sell. I suppose we could be headed for a big rally up to 4 soon but this seems like more of a fluke to me and think we will be down towards 3 again soon.

Some cartel is funneling cash into bitcoin. I expect $25 by tomorrow. Tongue

Volume is off the charts today.  It's been fun watching the big buys.

It seems to me like someone just bought 11k coins at 10 cents higher than they might have been able to.. A bid wall was placed at 3.195 and it got ate pretty fast. I guess we'll see what happens next.

Someone has 11k in coins i suspect they may not have wanted to actually buy. I think we can expect an hardened effort to continue raising the price. It is possible they are acquiring all these coins trying to trigger a bubble.

The price may have moved a little more, but this surge to 3.20 was half the volume of the jump from 3-3.13 a few hours ago.

I believe I saw what was a 300k transaction on bitcoinuity.  The Manipulator has nothing else to do on a Saturday night.

Ah, that sounds like the capitalism I know: using money as a tool to make more money.

I guess the question is, at what point will they stop driving up the price, and start to sell to recoup their investment?

I wonder if the selloff has anything to do with the fact that mtgoxlive isn't working at the moment.

I watched it fall, then mtgoxlive went out.

Selloff was happening before mtgoxlive crashed. I saw it drop to 3.00 and then lost connection to mtgoxlive.

Note to self: DOS mtgoxlive via a few 20,000btc trades.

I'm now thinking the Manipulator is a couple guys on IRC who drink to much and mess with the market for shits and giggles.

I have noticed that virtually every time we have major market moves MTGoxlive goes down. Thankfully there are a few other sites that track mtgox in real time  so it doesnt hurt to have all of them running at once. I am not sure if it is a volume thing that is bringing mtgoxlive down but I dont think its a DOS attack. I am getting a 404 error which is new and a DOS attack would leave it unreachable.

I think it's probably choking when it tries to send out 2000 orders over 250 different connections within 10 seconds.
