Head of the Board of Trustees of MtGox, Nobuaki Kobayashi, is probably preparing to sell a new batch of bitcoins, this time at a rate of 2,000 BTC.
This assumption was made by the bitcoin-investor and the head of the Altana Digital Currency Fund, Alistair Milne. In support of his words, he brought to Twitter a link to the trustee's MtGox address.

Apparently, on the morning of Thursday, April 26, from the address indicated, 2,000 were transferred to another address. Some of the funds that were there before (8,000 BTC) were almost immediately expended.
Possible simultaneous sale of such a large batch can lead to a further drawdown of the bitcoin price.
