afaik that have nothing to do, is more like this if i buy or sell 100 btc then 98 will go on mtgox, before that hax with a volume of 20k the hedge was only 37% so only 37 btc from 100 i buy or sell will got on mtgox

Maybe the % hedged was out of all available bitcoins Bitcoinica had.  Now that 40,000 have been heisted, the percentage is higher as there is less total amount of bitcoins.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

The hedge percentage represents amount of trades that were hedged in Mt. Gox.

It has nothing to do with solvency, liquidity or total funds available. Usually when the volume is smaller the hedge percentage tends to be higher because there's more likely to have a net change in positions held by all Bitcoinica customers.

When the volume is huge, a lot of trades can be matched internally, and hence the hedge percentage can be as low as 40%.

Why does the page sometimes show percentages over 100%?

Sometimes we have to hedge manually to prevent ourselves from being a bucket shop. This happens in rare situations such as the recent hack, as our Bitcoin holdings suddenly dropped too much.

Hey Z

I know you have been busy, just wanted to express my respect for your fortitude in the recent hack.

Your honor and resilience are really impressive, and I will be leaving my humble deposit with you until the storm has passed.

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.
