Something like that; a correct financial operation at best; for exemple, Lehman Brothers was buying back its stocks before collapsing

my opinion is that the wall is a bank or some vested interest in keeping the price suppressed.

Could also be this guy. Have a look: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2id042/big_dumps_coming_40k_btc_on_the_move_early/

hmm, sour news (for equities), imho.

historically speaking companies typically buy back stock at market highs, CEO's are generally crappy investors.

Just my 2bits on the subject though Smiley

From a total return perspective, companies are as bad timers as the average investor. Mergers and Acquisitions tend to peak with markets too. Both indicate exhaustion of profit opportunities in the broad economy.

My guess is that we are now in a phase where non-economic actors (e.g., govts) and large players (e.g., Winkle-types) can cooperate.  The latter needs the former to make their operations possible and the it would be in the interest of the former to limit the body-count of persons interested in the solution, it being significantly disruptive.

We've had 3 quarters of time for the fruit to ripen on the tree and it was time for a good shake.  Hopefully this will set the stage for some capitalization on the upside finally.  At least when it is all over which I'm hardly convinced of.  I'd been prepared for $250-ish, but it was just a round number I invented on the fly with no particular insight or analysis.

An alternate theory (perhaps shot down in other analysis, and I'm not following things all that closely) is that the latest Russian criminalization forced some whales to simply throw in the towel in the most expedient and straightforward way possible, and some of their counterparts in other locales mopped the BTC up.  If/when such criminalization happens in the West it will be very interesting to watch.  At that point there probably would be no venue in which to create a wall.

we've moved into the window for an intermediate/weekly term low.  while my short cover occurred on 9/30 and was 3d too early, today makes me feel better, as we're getting a decent bounce.  the trick will be if we're forming a daily/short term bottom right now or going to get another push down further into the weekly/intermed term bottom.  nothing has changed in the longer term bearish outlook assuming the top was 1923.  we'll see:
