"The key thing regulators emphasized was that blunt tools inevitably lead to overreach. More targeted tools can lead to more nuanced solutions."

Vinny Lingham of Gyft points out that asymmetric adoption of Bitcoin (merchants growing faster than users) puts downward pressure on BTC price. 

I'll add that the converse is probably what led to the BTC price rally in 2013: more users getting into Bitcoin than merchants, creating buy side pressure and pushing the BTC price up.

As Vinny discusses, user adoption of Bitcoin (and buying into BTC in general) has slowed down considerably in the wake of the Mt Gox meltdown and subsequent media frenzy.

So again, with user adoption (BTC buy side) slowing down and merchant adoption (BTC sell side) picking up, this leads to downward pressure on the BTC price.
Bitcoin was trading at circa $450 as of March 31st 2014
