With BitShares 2.0 about to blow minds on its path, I would be waiting something like a couple of months before the Ethereum GUI release to start buying ETH ;)
I may reconsider my position on ethereum once they have POS

Its falling for the same reason BTS fell from 9000 sats last fall to 1400.
Because it has a high valuation due to release hype, but it is still an alpha product. 

ETH is going to do pretty much what BTS did just a year behind, most likely.  I dont think it will fall to 8 million though, probably 20M.  ETH was always 2-3x bigger than BTS in its hype/community size.

I'm expecting this. Waiting for <30M to start to get in, hoping it will go to 20

very reasonable position, i agree; however, you never really know what's going to happen. long term i'm very bullish on both BTS and ETH, and my preference is to get in earlier and lose a bit, keep buying on the way down in increasing quantity, and then enjoy the ride back up. that's at least how i've played BTS and am now enjoying the bounce back up, which i think is just the start. ETH likely has an excellent future ahead of it, as well, so when you put things into long term perspective, a market cap < $60M still looks very cheap to me.

I think they dumbed now to trigger margin calls to the bulls and push out weak hands, knowing the price will fall significantly lower and buy back with the plan to pump ethereum price just before the augur crowdsale ends (1 October) That way the augur ether investors will have a bigger pie of REPS (augur tokens) since they said that they will count how much $ valuation their donation have at the end of the crowdsale (BTC vs ETH)

1) I wouldnt be able to trade it, because my bitshares client crashes after I put in a couple of orders, and then requires me to resync the entire blockchain, taking most of a day.

Before you put orders make a backup of the "chain" folder (.BitShares/chain) and when it resync close the wallet > delete the original "chain" folder and replace it with the backup...
You will see/confirm your orders with a delay of about 5 minutes and the chance to make new orders... you will save many days  :)

Anybody has a clue why the price is falling so sharply today?
Is it related to news I am not aware of?

Imo it seems ethereum will take the same path as BitShares. A big hype at the beggining and then the price will slowly decrease till people have usable software. Then it will rise up again.

It would be nice to see the money migrate from Ethereum to BitShares, teh charts are the opposite right now. Would love to see Eth at 20cents and jump in with BTS profits

I agree.  Ethereum presale investors good a good chance to sell high on ETH and buy BTS at the low. 
Hopefully we will have the same opportunity to sell BTS and buy cheap ETH later.

goosebumps, to say the least !!!

Etherium is cool, but in my opinion there will be lots of chances to buy in much lower than current levels before it's truly useful.

I still can't believe people put their hard earned money into something like this.

Yeah, someone dumped again.  Might go a lot lower, unless the 380 range holds.

Hmm, it might have run out of steam again near 430.  Its super risky to be in right now, on either side.  But being margin long is riskier I think.  Too much damage was done.
