The reward drop is definitely not fully priced in yet. In part it is, of course, but not fully. It will become priced in once the reward drop starts to be the #1 talking point in the community. So perhaps a couple of months before the drop. Late Summer at the earliest, probably early Autumn.
More than anything, the reward drop is going to affect miners. Who cares if you have a bunch of BTC you're holding and suddenly they're not created as quickly? But if you're out digging for gold and finding 1BTC per day for a year and suddenly you start to find 0.5BTC per day, your potential to earn money after paying for electricity just got killed. I suspect we will see network hash rate take a major dive following the drop -- I know I'll be shutting down unless price goes up or the number of people mining drops substantially (e.g. difficulty goes down).

won't this open the network to be easily taken over by a 51% attack:S

Probably not.

It's only Friday. Doesn't the big news always happen on Fridays and weekends (versus the bombast on Mondays to Wednesdays) ? Wink

this is it boys this is the start of the epic rise in value!

we are moving up to 8$ b4 the end of next week, mark my words

marked.

5.62 isn't quite $8...

5.62 was good enough for me to start selling. I decided to let 20 BTC go and collect the USD.
I will keep selling as the price goes up. Naturally I am a miner but I have held off selling for a
while in anticipation of this type of rise.

New supply halves and demand stays the same (maybe even increases with the reward drop publicity). I say the price will go up at that time...but will it double?

Still, even considering the fees of transferring money around, he could have gotten a much better deal.

Or we can call the obvious now.  We've reached a top, and at the very least the market is going to rest for a while, but I suspect we're going to see more people sell and take profits because the liquidity is there.

I still don't understand what's going on here.  Ok, so I've got 500BTC I'm willing to play with.  What's next?

notme is right.  I put all the money I had in the various exchanges back into bitcoin some time ago.  Most of it is in offline wallets.  I just bought 40 more BTCs on MtGox yesterday to play with at GLBSE.  I haven't done anything with GLBSE and decided it was time to take a look.

I think so, then higher yet and then collapse back down to the doubling. Something like that anyway.
