How is this possible? Why do all bitcoin exchanges drop at exactly the same time? I understand bots and arbitrage in principle, but in practice it takes months to get money out of MtGox, yet the USD rate moves up and down exactly as on bitstamp (with a fixed gox premium). Why?
With Major Exchanges Run by Professionals like MTGox, Bitstamp, BTER Being Hacked, How Is Bitcoin Safe For The Average Joe?
How can you expect the average person to secure their Bitcoin if professionals can't even do it half the time? I don't see it growing to be more than a niche currency for enthusiasts if this isn't solved somehow.
I'm relatively new to Bitcoin and I can't seem to figure out why the price on mtgox is almost 10 more than coinbase and bitstamp...
I don't use mtgox, but all the sites that list the 'current' price seem to base it off their prices. However, it seems for everywhere else the price is significantly lower. For example, mtgox is at 101 while coindesk is around 94. Thats $7 right now, but earlier it was more... Volume is occuring at each site, why are people selling/buying at such different prices?
ATTN MTGOX Sellers! Do not sell your Bitcoins for so cheap. You're still not going to get cash and Krabapple is buying your dirt cheap coins and dumping them on Bitstamp!
Karpleles is buying up your dirt cheap coins and selling them on Bitstamp and other exchanges. Do not let him do this. Stop selling your coins for nothing. Just hold, you knew the risk, you're not helping yourself and you're damaging the rest of the community.
How are bitcoins trading for $285 on mtgox and $620 on bitstamp?
Isn't there a way to arbitrage by buying on mtgox and selling on bitstamp? are they not transferrable? Or are the price quotes wrong? I've never opened a bitcoin account so I can't understand this - what is going on here?
Can someone just say: Everything is OK. Bitcoin is not cracked, just MtGOX and Bitstamp failed?
All the exchanges is waiting for good news but I think there are no bad news. Bitstamp and MtGox will fix their wallets soon and Bitcoin will go to the moon. Now everybody wants to hear that everything is OK and after Bitstamp's software update will be OK. Who can do this?
I don't know whether or not this is because I'm in Canada or not, but the localbitcoin.com selling prices are way above the current market prices at MtGox and Bitstamp. I've been humming and hawing about getting into bitcoin for real and I think that the price right now is a good opportunity. Is this disparity normal for buying locally?
Bitcoin Price Indicator (Ubuntu) supports MtGox,BTC-E, Bitstamp. (Watch everything without a trollbox)
This might be useful for everyone on Ubuntu seeing the huge price variation. I fixed some kinks by testing in LTC. For BTC it displays (mtgox,btce,bitstamp,blockchain). You can download it from the github here Github Github Download Link Screencap here So this is the current easiest way to setup and get icons and everything.

unzip the files where you want them
run sudo sh installDependencies.sh
run "python setup.py" (do a simple install)
drag and drop the desktop file into your launcher or click the bitcoin icon desktop file

So I have been looking into purchasing a couple of BTC for a while and have found it's not easy in the UK. However I've jumped through a few hoops and now have a bittylicious account set up which is verified enough for me to make some small purchases. Only trouble is that while the MtGox exchange tells me a BTC is $300 (£200), bittylicious and bitstamp are talking prices of $600+ (£400). So are the charges for getting into BTC that much in the UK that I have to pay double? Or am I missing something? It would seem that this disparity would make it rather easy for US traders to just buy in the US exchanges then sell to UK for an easy 100% profit.
The MtGox exchange can best explain how this happened.
