look at the correction that's gonna come from that :) the difficulty didn't change that much and neither did the supply, a small drop would've been correct, but that's not small :D
Yep, doesn't look very sane to me either.Some people are trying to forcefully lengthen the bust we had; I'm not so certain this is possible without risking heavy losses.
This is not an all time record in USD.It is silly to consider volume in BTC because it is much easier to move higher amounts of BTC when the price is low compared with when the price is high.This is why you should consider price*volume, which gives your BTC volume a weight. Note that price*volume is just volume in USD!This day is nowhere near the all-time high volume.
I agree with @Kris on the dollar volume (or whatever currency). Would be nice if BitcoinCharts added this (or maybe they already have it?).
