Newbie bitcoinica question here:

If i'm sitting on a short position in bitcoinica, and i want to liquidate at a certain price, which bitcoin has not fallen to yet, is there a way to set this up in advance? For example, say i want bitcoinica to auto liquidate me if bitcoin falls to $4.50. Is this just the same as a limit buy at $4.50?

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Yes, if you are short and if Bitcoinica is applying conventional trading terminology, then a limit buy order would be filled at 4.50 or better. A buy stop order would be placed above the current market price to protect your short position against an adverse move.
