The magnetotransport properties of several hundreds of micrometer long multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) bundles were studied. The samples were contacted with silver paste and showed ohmic behavior at temperatures above 10 K, i.e. linear current-voltage (I-V) curves. The temperature dependence of the resistance is well described by variable-range hopping mechanism for one-dimensional systems. In this temperature range the magnetoresistance is negative and can be explained using an empirical model based on spin-scattering processes that suggests the existence of magnetic order. No magnetic impurities were found by means of energy dispersive X-ray. At temperatures between 2 K and 12 K, the I-V curves showed a nonlinear behavior, indicating the existence of a potential barrier. In this temperature range and at low magnetic fields and low enough input currents the magnetoresistance changed to positive accompanied by a clear hysteresis. The hysteresis as well as the positive magnetoresistance vanished at large inputs currents. Our results indicate that at T < 12 K the unusual butterfly hysteresis in the magnetoresistance is directly related to the nonlinear I-V behavior and suggests superconducting.
