Can Dwolla still be used to move money into, out of and between exchanges? Or does the new restrictions put a damper on that. If so, then that's a factor that weighs negatively on the exchange rate.
Will the Blockchain mobile app allow iPhone and iPad users to finally, for the first time, an easy, secure way to use bitcoins -- something they've not been able to use before? If so, then that's a factor that weighs positively on the exchange rate.
Will BitInstant really have a way where from any of 700,000 locations around the world money can be transferred from cash into bitcoins somehow? if so, then that's a big factor that weighs positively on the exchange rate.
Are there any entrepreneurs cranking away on some idea that will involve bitcoins in some manner? If so, then that's a factor that weighs positively on the exchange rate.
As far as this being a "slump" though ... it isn't. The exchange rate never got below where it was before the weekend, thus no "weekend dip" occurred. Thus possibly no rally on Monday from those trying to snag the lower price. Who knows.
