I have had an interesting thought lately. What if November to January was a brief correction from the 6 months long bear market which is over now?

If we assume the top is 7.22 and there is again a months long 94% "consolidation", the low would turn out to be 0.45 USD.

Food for thought.

Humanity had a similar consolidation 70000 years ago when we went down to less than 10000. Extrapolating with your method means we died out about 65000 years ago. Sounds entirely reasonable. Thanks for pointing that out. How stupid to think that we're now at 7 Billion.

As Technomage said, why would any sane person sell Bitcoins in this manner when they could get more money selling them slowly? Either they can get more money another way selling them like this, or they don't care about money.

Maybe they know something.

I see this as a manipulation attempt based on the predictions of what will happen if $5.4 breaks. It doesn't make any sense otherwise, someone who simply wanted to exit the market with 40k BTC would've sold smaller amounts at a time, not all 40k at once. The market had no signs of crashing so the seller would've got a much better price by selling in smaller amounts. That dump was very intentional, the question is will people fall for it. I'm not falling for it.

edit: I am not sure it is a loosing operation. thinking....

Not exactly - there was a dump - then  someone was buying up, and now there was another dump.  It all looks like someone with really big money was just playing and checking our reactions.

Looks like those dumps have lesser impact on the price these days. Some time ago this amount would cause crash and panic, and today price hardly moving.

Your favorite chart, the total bid depth is down about $200,000 in the last 24hrs also.

What do you mean? Do you think the sellers know something we don’t yet?

Interestingly enough, if you compare the magnitudes of each rally and assume that they will drop as much as the first rally as a magnitude of the percentage, you get a "perfect" estimate of a 33% drop from our high of $7.22, bringing us down to $4.81.

...God damn 33% percent retracement rule.
Damn I'm good. Let's see if this holds...
