Bitcoin resumes fall

FXStreet (Mumbai) - FXStreet (Barcelona) - Bitcoin is back in red after the recovery witnessed on Monday. Prices had plummeted more than 18% over the weekend, according to Coindesk’s Bit Coin Price Index.

However, the hiccups may only be temporary.

Nevertheless, BTC/USD appears to have resumed its fall today. The virtual currency is trading 2.36% lower at 321.28, after having nearly tested the resistance level of 340.
