3x BitCoin and US Dollar

BTCE:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
Why is there such a big difference in the three different "markets"?


Good question!
Hello Troy.

Such a difference between exchanges is because of significant withdrawal difficulties. I.e., Mtgox has some trouble withdrawing USD (large latencies due to internal exchange issues and official formalities) and, for some period, was not performing this operation at all.

Also, exchanges differ on each other: i.e., mtgox and bitstamp require identity confirmation and are subject of taxation and btc-e is not. Thus, they have different volumes and audience. You may watch and for more details.
The cost of transferring money between btc exchanges is too high. It kills most of the arbitrage.
