A couple of things to watch out for at the moment:

NEW YORK (InsideBitcoins) — Promising some “interesting announcements” regarding Bitcoin             on Twitter (see below), Patrick Byrne, CEO             of             , will deliver the final keynote for the Inside Bitcoins             Conference and Expo in Las Vegas at the Flamingo Hotel on October 5-7, 2014.

"The meeting will focus on issues related to clearing Non-Deliverable Forwards (NDFs) and the digital currency bitcoin             . The meeting will consist of two panels.

Depending on the outcome of these meetups, keynotes & events ahead, it is almost certainly one that will have huge effect on the price in the coming months. The last time it happened was on October 2013 which resulted in the rally towards $1000.

Thanks for the pertinent info. I'll be looking out for these events.
