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.

The official server time for OKCoin is China Standard Time (GMT+8) while for BTC-E it is Eastern European Time (GMT +3).  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. You can find a live chart for BTC-E on their website, or you can make a demo account and download their MetaTrader 4 platform instead.
