My number 1 trading rule: EDUCATE YOURSELF!

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

Looks like selling pressure might be coming soon after tax bills and penalties are handed out...

It will be interesting to see if things like that are reflected in the price or just ignored and it carries on surging.

I'm going to keep an eye on it myself

Anyone talking like Bitcoin is unstoppable is not a trader...they are either a gambler or just a plain fool

I've hear people talking about anonymity with Bitcoin, but now here we have the exact opposite, should they comply

Just a few troubles with any crypto coin:
* Regulation will be imposed
* Scams to be exposed
* Hackers are always attacking
* It's so un-eco friendly it's unbelievable - the amount of energy being used to mine is increasing all the time, predicted to be more than the consumption of the UK early next year and surpassing the US by 2019. Sooner or later it will be stopped.
Not so bad if you hold a derivative and can get rid, not so good if you own actual coin.
