Anyone looking at the charts will see whales pushing the price down again and again. Is this good for Bitcoin's PR?

Nope, but that's how it is. It makes the people with money more money.

No market, however huge, is immune from this type of thing.

Price going down doesn't mean manipulation.

Bulls have gotten ahead of itself, correction is healthy for bitcoin ecology system.

This is true. I do think that the fact that many people often scream manipulation whenever the price of bitcoin falls is a sign that bitcoin does need a small amount of regulation to make sure everyone has a level playing field.

You could get it lower than that, if you wait for it to drop.... I was impatient... Last week I snagged one at $493+5 = $498

then when it dropped to $490...i bought another one for $495...only to have the market hit $470.... so Yeah....

Im gonna wait for it tank further or just sit tight!

i don't think this is manipulation, the pump to 1200 was manipulation indeed, but now we are retuning to a normal value after that big pump

The price stabalizes at the limited range between $470 to $530, is stable, which reflect the true value of BTC. There is nothing to do with manipulation. It is a good time to buy a little bit now.

Anyone looking at the charts will see whales pushing the price down again and again. Is this good for Bitcoin's PR?

So, price going down is manipulation?

Don't seem to hear this kind of accusation when price is going up.

No it's not good for bitcoins PR but then again it can be good for those who were late getting into bitcoin when the price goes down to be able to jump in and start investing if they wish. The only people it probably does not help is those who are trying to sell when the price goes down.

If it is going down is good We will be able to buy more cheaper. Everyone will, so there will be way more bitcoin users. Smiley  is just a win-win situation.

Manipulation can be good if it is going upward and raise awareness for the local.

It is bad when it is manipulated downward and the local might perceived it as pump and dump.

Yes there are signs.

1, Every time the price get past a certain point, some dude/bot dumps a whole amount on a western exchange (usually bitfinex).
2, The price goes back up slowly (usually because of the Chinese).

Manipulation is never good. Price manipulation upwards is usually followed by the manipulators cashing out.

I won't be spending BTC at a loss (under $1250), so keep manipulating it down and no business will ever get mine.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.
