the last time we had a wall of this size and determination was at $2.  i was a part of that.  i think we have a new bottom.

The $2 walls were a much larger portion of the market.  MtGoxLive's graph showed 50K BTC on the bid wall and 25K BTC in other bids... this time it's 45K BTC on the bid wall and 115K BTC in other bids.




yes but the # of USD's is larger.

there's no denying this is bullish.  i've said $4 is the new $2 psychologically.  you're free to disagree but this bid has been put front and center @ $4.60.  someone wants IN in a big way.

Or that's what they want people to think so they can drop the wall and squeeze the longs.  Don't be so sure you know another's motive.  Like Proudhon said, seen it before.

I don't know who's right, and maybe it is still up in the air for the person who placed the wall.  He/She could be waiting to see how the market handles the threat to know what the best way to take it is.

i guess the only way for us to know is if ppl starting hitting the wall.  somebody step up, please.

as an aside.  if you took down this 40K BTC wall, the bid side still outnumbers the ask side.

yawn

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.

The thing that I've found the most surprising about these most recent bidwalls is that they don't go away. They form and get sold into gradually. This is much different from the bidwalls in November, where someone was gaming algorithm trade bots to then drop the wall and sell into the bot bids. It is almost as if whoever is doing this actually does want to accumulate coin.

In fact, in the last five days or so it has become clear that for the first time in a very long while (since before July of 2011 as far as I remember) the ratio for how far the price increases on 10k+ buys compared to the ratio for how far the price falls on 10k+ sells is actually higher. Even when the price increased from the $2 range to $7 in December/January it took a significant buyer to achieve this. Now, if a similar significant buyer came in and did the same thing, the price would move exponentially higher.

The reason why this bugs me, of course, is because I want to see gradual and rational increases in price relative to difficulty. What is setting up right now seems to be irrational gains for hardly any movement whatsoever. I would highly advise anyone trading to leverage themselves accordingly and not hold strong positions on either the long or short side right now because the volatility risk is extremely high.

TLDR; I am still not convinced this isn't a bidwall manipulator who will drop it in a second's notice to sell into trading bots, but it just doesn't seem like that has been the case these last few days. Maybe they don't know what they are doing?

The wall at $2.2 was the first thing I thought of when I saw this new wall at $4.6.

It was 50k BTC.  It was removed overnight, but price only dropped to $1.949 (iirc) on weak selling volume.  It was back up the following day.

Well, the thing is, whoever this person is, they are either a bear that doesn't know what they are doing, or they are a bull that is being quite blatant.

While the former is funny, the latter makes me wonder just who the hell it is...

Considering the price is $4.7 - 4.8 currently. $5 might be a tad to late. But, I don't get this speculation thing. I'm probably missing something.

Its a bullish, aggressive market-maker who already has a significant amount of coin.  The wall is there to inspire buyers and push the price higher.  I'm sure he has much more cash that's not in the bids, and would probably put another wall up if this one is sold into (as he did back in November.  a big seller sold into the wall two times iirc, and put back up immediately after each time).

The fact that we see the wall go up now, to me indicates that after the drop from $7, this market-maker probably accumulated a lot of the coins around $5.5, then around $4.5-$4.75 (see the hot spots on https://ferroh.com/chart?t=180d).  So he needs to push the price back up, above his average cost per coin, to stay profitable. 

He's very well funded, probably having (in addition to substantial coin, at the moment) more cash than the market has coins.  After seeing how it played out in November, he'll probably be successful.  Little reason to suspect this is a bluff bid where he's simultaneously unloading coins with asks at $4.75-$5.0.

I think he'll push it to over $5.5, but we might see some resistance if he starts trying to unload above $6.  More likely he'll wait until higher.  A push from here is enough to send the market over $7.2.

Starting to think it's an order from bitcoinica.com it would make sense to buy a hugh order and no longer pay any fees on mtgox especially when 4.60 could be the new 2.

Bitcoinica still has not given me 50% of my claim of 600 BTC

Right, because it somehow makes sense to pay extra fees on a $40000 order....

Well bitcoinica.com orders are not being match on mtgox, unless it has to meaning buying and selling on mtgox, if bitcoinica.com can own enough Bitcoin and cash, then there is no reason to buy and sell via mtgox

I believe bitcoinica hedges with market orders on MtGox.  Do limit orders on bitcoinica ever appear as a bid/ask on MtGox?
