In summary (in order of appearance):

1) Lower emission (need to wait for that for a couple of years).
2) Drastic increase in adoption (in numbers of coins).
3) Increased Investors.
4) Black Swan event.
5) China and Russia and Japan.
6) Having 12 middle class private people "investors" onboard.

I like to add (or is that included in 4?):

7) General media attention.

Let me put it another way.

1) GUI
2) General media attention.

Done.

What's wrong with the web wallet GUI recently released?

And I would add #3: China. The Chinese largely drove 2013's runup at the end of the year and they are running up XRP/STR right now:

http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ripple/#markets
http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/stellar/#markets

BTC38 is the #1 exchange for both of these coins. If we can get the Chinese community onboard then it'll be a huge win.

Nothing's wrong with the web wallet - it's fantastic.  Smiley

Nonetheless, a local GUI wallet is fundamental to user expansion. I think everyone understands this so there's no need to expand upon it here.

Agreed on China, although it's difficult to determine the cultural weight of the libertarian argument over there. I suspect 'minimal government' and 'communism' are somewhat irreconcilable concepts. ;-)

Nothing user-wise, but companies/websites (e.g. betting sites) strongly prefer a GUI with an API to easily track and automate transactions. @TrueCryptonaire, inflation will be drasticly lower at the end of 2015, we won't have to wait 2 years for that. I agree that BTC38 would be a huge win.

It's a chart for a period of only 3-4 days. I'm not really sure if this has a credibility...

Why did the price of Monero go down do importantly ?
That is an indication of people losing interest in XMR. Less development could be the result.
The development continues as usual, neither faster, nor slower EXCEPT that this is the end of the year so until beginning of January, progress will probably be slower.

Inflation kill that coin, so obviously.
The price fell 75% since the discussions about emission curve. So if inflation was the issue, it would mean the curve shall be four times slower just to accomodate. I don't believe the "emission curve" argument matters at this level of depreciation. Monero is long term and trading is short term. Simple as that.

I don't believe the "emission curve" argument matters at this level of depreciation. Monero is long term and trading is short term. Simple as that.

In fact, when XMR was at 0.004, the emission in USD terms was about $60,000 per day.

Now it is <$6,000.

Who has an ear, let him hear.

The vote for the emission in MEW is coming these days, but we have already achieved a consensus with the largest stakeholders, and the core team, that the emission curve will not be changed.

The emission debate was never about the current price, it was about the future prospects and whether the fast-ish emission is undesirable for mass adoption or not. There was no unanimosity on this issue that is anyway speculative, so making a random change to the emission curve was deemed more scammy than beneficial.

The emission in USD terms is so low that even one person starting to buy XMR can turn the tide for the price; the lack of this means that the new emission dumping presses the price even lower. As I see it.

It also sets the stage for a sudden and violent melt-up as the bears are getting really complacent and piggy. It has happened before on more than one occasion with other alt-coins. LTC and NMC among others come to mind. The market psychology here is no different from that of an over extended bull market that ends with a sudden and violent crash.

I get a fresh stream of fiat within a month and will start to buy more if the exchange rate is still low (around 0.001 BTC). I aim at 0.1% of the base suply (18440 XMR; not there yet, but getting close Wink )

For future reference, I quote the OTC trades.

XMR below 0.001 BTC was OTC territory. So if you are new to XMR, this could be usefull information.
If you manage to buy at current levels, you buy at the same exchange rate as a few weeks after the launch of XMR

For reference here is the chart for LTC all time http://www.cryptocoincharts.info/pair/ltc/btc/btc-e/alltime In the LTC case the trigger was a rise in the XBT/USD rate. In this case apart from a rise in the XBT/USD rate we have a host of other possible triggers.

EDIT: NMC Chart http://www.cryptocoincharts.info/pair/nmc/btc/btc-e/alltime

like the fast diminishing block reward? Wink
or the fact that the development is still going on? I remember NMC going higher when the GUI was launched Smiley
or you mean the fundamentals? The fact that XMR is the best privacy oriented coin  Grin

I still believe in this coin and although my involvement is faily limited, I fully support the fantastic work of the dev team!

For starters the database and the GUI. NMC did not have a "database" issue. Then there is the issue of the 1MB block limit in XBT which can blow any time soon. Virtually every other coin has this issue but XMR does not. As for the emission curve even an MEW vote to finalize this issue could set it off. When the time comes the market will find an excuse.

I would think of the stock market in 1929 and turn the chart upside down. Bears can fall into the same greed trap as bulls by selling low hoping to buy lower. More recently consider the fate of pirateat40 and the bear raid on XBT he started in the fall of 2011. Greed not fear got to this bear.

For starters the database and the GUI.

true Smiley  but didn't want to make it too complicated...
DB will make clients more usable. I guess the devs want the DB to work flawlessly before they release a GUI.
We already know a lot of work is done for the GUI (we saw the print screens this summer).

Code first, then usability, finally marketing Smiley

The database is the critical one on the development side, since this allows Monero to run on most desktops/laptops. There is a reason why the devs made this a priority. The GUI will follow after the database.
