This week we have seen a continuation of the bear market from the recent months, but the demand seems to stop further declines (for now) in the range around 6,500$, which is a strong support. 10,000 Bitcoins found their way out from MTGOX’s wallet six days ago and has probably affected the market and was the cause for the quick drop from the 7300$ range to $6,600.

The trading volume is also on a downward trend and stands at an average of 10 billion USD per day.
