Historically charts and graphs showing trade volume of bitcoin versus price have been in lockstep. As the trade volume rises and falls so has the price. Until recently...
In the past few weeks several major rapid crashes in price have been followed by a practically instant restoration to the pre-crash price. At least two of these crashes were accompanied by the EXCHANGES SHUTTING DOWN MOMENTARILY and the price being restored to pre-crash level within ONE HOUR.
This is NOT natural behavior!!! Bitcoin freaks rant on and on about how the software is open source. The software running the exchanges (and which sets the prices) is NOT open source. They have perfected their scam (for now). When the price crashes they can just quickly tweak the price back to whatever they want (pure fraud),
