So there are at least a few people here running multiple models that they pick and choose to trade based on, whether using computers or elliot wave theory. Do the events of earlier today put you at a disadvantage?
It seems to me every time one of these technical difficulties occurs the market becomes "wary" and kind of resets, negating recent info that has been included in the models.
I'm just interested to know how people deal with that situation.

You are referring to the unintentional halt in trading at Gox?

The data from the trading glitch has actually produced some extra divergence in my models—half a percent or so. But I don't like to throw out data, it will take me a little bit to find a way to work it out.
Thank you for your acknowledgement. I am 12 and appreciate it.

BlackScholes and the assumption of a (normal) gaussian distribution in determining option pricing is one of the major flaws that blew up LTCM. The 'mean' should be thicker than the 'tails', and most price action disagrees. The number of two to three sigma events fall outside of the 'predicted' distribution, which means of course any assumptions based on that model are doomed to tailrisk of large magnitudes.
BTC is probably a more 'sane' market that anything out in the traded exchanges, if only by virtue of not having a crapload of subpennying frontrunning HighFrequency Trading algorithms dominating volume like the ES futures or the major Index stocks.
