The most beautiful sight... Short interest greater than the total BTC float.

I'm not suggesting you cover, people will do what they will.

I'm suggesting you are picking up nickels I. Front of the steam roller.

Don't confuse "not run over yet" status with anything...

Not quite sure what you mean.

There are 6700 short btc.

And there are 20.5 million leveraged longs.

That's not bullish - literally or historically.

More short than bitcoins available for lending perhaps?

I don't know what you mean by "picking up nickels" but shorting has been very profitable considering the weak bounces we've been getting

Well, alcohol excuses anything. That said, I think there will be another drop.

Look inside yourself, and you will see that you are the bubble.

There's something wrong with this thread: there aren't any idiot trolls with poor english skills posting in it. I shall report it to the moderator.
