Why is bitcoin going up?

So I bought 30 bitcoins last month for $140/ea... and now they're worth 725/ea. Just wondering if it would be smarter to sell or buy... I'm still trying to figure out if this is something to do with Silk Road and Silk Road 2.0 or something to do with China... or something else entirely.

What are your thoughts?

    Soooo I think ever since the US Government seized all those Bitcoin from Silk Road , they have people on the inside increasing the prices so they can liquidate their coins$$$

    It is true that the price of bitcoin will fluctuate, not the trade which has used it. This is because there is no central bank control. And we cannot estimate the demand and supply, or even the foundation as we always do in the stock market. So the risk is high in the short run. However, it can be more upward trend, if there are more demand. Some big retailers have started to use bitcoin. If so it will be a good future.

    Yea, found an article or two for you to check out:

    They are saying the value would just keep increasing, but the market seems to be extremely volatile. I was looking on the site and found this.

    "Bitcoin price is volatile

    The price of a bitcoin can unpredictably increase or decrease over a short period of time due to its young economy, novel nature, and sometimes illiquid markets. Consequently, keeping your savings with Bitcoin is not recommended at this point. Bitcoin should be seen like a high risk asset, and you should never store money that you cannot afford to lose with Bitcoin. If you receive payments with Bitcoin, many service providers can convert them to your local currency."

    Now I don't know much about bitcoin, so that's basically what I found out. I hope I was at least of some assistance :)

    I would definitely sell a few bitcoins just to make back your money, then hold on to the rest as an investment. It's only going to keep going up in the long-term, with highs/lows in the short-term.

    Binary options let users trade in currency pairs and stocks for various predetermined time-periods, minimal of which is 30 seconds. Executing trades is straightforward. The system uses user-friendly interfaces, which even an 8 years old kid, can operate without having to read any instructions. But winning trades is Not easy.

    Binary trading is advertised as the only genuine system that lets users earn preposterous amounts of money in ridiculously short period of time. Advertisers try to implicate as if you can make $350 every 60 seconds; if it was true then binary trading would truly be an astonishing business.

    However, does it make any sense? Can every trader make tons of money in binary trading? Who is actually paying all the money or the profit to traders?

    The first challenge is finding a trustworthy binary broker; secondly, you need to find a binary trading strategy, which you can use to make profits consistently. Without an effective trading strategy, there is no way you can make money in this business.

    I would sell enough to get your initial investment back and let the rest ride. The price is all over the place the last few weeks. Granted I think it's gone up to fast. That being said I also wouldn't be surprised if it hit $1000 in the near future.
