Markets Update: Last Week’s Price Trends Move in the Opposite Direction

During our last markets update cryptocurrency markets were wild with energy, as bitcoin’s (BTC) price dropped below the $6K range last weekend. Since then the decentralized currency’s market value has rebounded and is averaging around $7,125-7,200 on Wednesday, November 15.
