Bitcoin is trading mixed on different exchanges as the losses slow down. Let’s start with BTC-E first. Two days ago we lost $3 dollars, yesterday $2.50 and today BTC/USD closed down by only $1.59.

To further confuse the matter, the charts on the OKCoin website seem to adjust depending on your computer clock. The charts on BTC-E open/close at 23:00 CET.
