Have you been paying attention?
In case you haven't noticed STEEM value lately, it has been steadily increasing on daily basis. Evaluating from chart above, it all might have started on the 13 of January, then another set of movements on around the 15 and then a couple starting on the 18 up to 22 of January.
bitHumb and Binance
That's mostly what I see here. Didn't look at the data volumes traded in the exchanges for the periods above, but from what it looks, it could well explain the price movement. The movements are probably between the hot and "cold" wallets of the exchanges, so that means there was need for liquidity and hence more trades (purchases in this case).
Note for @steemchiller: The operators (>, <, =, etc) on the amount was not quite working for me.
What would be best to do now?
In my view, if you are new to STEEM, I would recommend you to keep doing your reading, exploring and going step-by-step. Don't rush, it can be exhausting and we don't want you to go away just because you didn't give the right time for the knowledge to kick in.
Already a STEEMian?
Then help and continue to tell others about the amazing apps you can use to work with STEEM. Don't just talk about steemit, speak about the games, the investments options, the knoledge and community sharing capability. I mean, this is ALL open information. That one day, will become (if not already) a huge target of data mining for all sorts of ends.
It's not all about the money!
Well, in my case at least. Of course I enjoy when it rains, but to be honest, the best part is actually the experience and all that I have learned so far.
