So I go to Tradhill and check their Market data, and I see this:
Quote
Highest Bid: 4.2000   Lowest Ask: 4.0999

Last I checked, if one person is bidding 4.2 and another is asking 4.0999, then a trade should already have been executed. Any insight on why this happens?

Also, on Mt Gox, I go to the Trade page, and they list similarly strange numbers: Lowest Ask Price: 4.03354, Highest Bid Price: 4.50000

Perhaps they are listing the high trade instead of the highest bid?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

I've noticed the highest bid price is wrong on gox as well, but I think that's just a bug in the site.  Everything else seems to be working.

As for Tradehill, I think they are having some technical difficulties...
