It could happen. But I think it would take about $1.5M to do it at this point.

Damn the walls, full speed ahead!

You should know by now that 'walls' don't really matter. They don't really describe how the market will respond once it moves.

It has taken about $3M/month of actual dollars flowing into the market to get us to where we are now. As it stands, price has gotten as far as it has on the basis of funds made available up to about 00:00 GMT today. Some of that has been taken off the table and we are basically re-trading with amounts that were there some 23 hours earlier.

In order to go to $8 all that has to come back, plus a lot more. A total of about $1.5M.

Looking at the chart, the last 6 hours we've been doing some sharp .50 - .70 spikes up and down.

Do you see us trading back to a less volatile range soon?

While I believe that the initial floor of $2 a couple of months ago, and the following slow rises to $3 or so are justifiable based upon fundemental metrics related to the bitcoin economy; the most recent spike to $6+ is unfounded and indicative of a rising mania.  The growth of the bitcoin economy simply hasn't had the time to keep up with that kind of runnup.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Bitcoinica is recently often out of BTC - this means there was a massive short selling going on in the past hours.  They broke the trend - but it looks like it bounced back to it - I think a short squeeze is on the menu on Saturday. It might be a huge spike - but the correction will come after it and this will be a longer correction, not just a quick dump and back.  At least that is what my crystal ball says.

I believe you could be right.  Seven-ate-nine.  The failed resistance at seven will eat through to 9 once we break 8.

Doesn't that assume that the "floor" of $2 wasn't an overcorrection to the downside?  Whatever the "proper" price of BTC is, market prices almost always overshoot, both up and down.

I don't think that the bitcoin economy has much of anything to do with the price. Bitcoin has established that value can reliably be stored and transferred using cryptographic keys, and this feature in and of itself is useful enough to justify the current valuation.  Being able to spend bitcoins directly in more places is just a bonus.

I sympathize with your sentiment. I would love to see Bitcoins trade and grow in value in a  slow, steady way. But as the last week as shown, the Bitcoin market is really based on speculation and manipulation.

You can go with the flow and hope to make out when she skyrockets into double digits, or you can sit it out and preserve USD if and when Bitcoins comes tumbling down.

I got out recently and made some profit.  You had to know the $7.20 plateau was not going to sustain. The last time we had a 1/2 day of steady pricing we were at $6.20. Maybe we are still correcting into a new trading range, but this recent volatility is keeping some folks out, me included.

No, brother. Remember all those bitcoin that were traded for fractions of a penny? Your extrapolated market cap is BS.

Yes, I made such an assumption.  I have no evidence that can reasonablely support this position, but nor is there any evidence to support the position that $2 was an overcorrection.  There simply isn't enogh data to make such a determination, and there cannot be.
