Since crashing below the $6000 mark two weeks ago, investors and those online gamblers caught transferring funds the past 14 days could only find comfort in the price stabilizing after each sudden drop.

By Sunday evening, the price had actually managed to rise around $700 from the previous early morning low of $3456, actually climbing back above the $4000 mark just prior to 5 pm EST.
