BTC/USD on the daily charts has broken below the important support zone at around $552 which is a huge negative for the digital currency. The price action witnessed in yesterday’s trading session was on the back of above average volumes which is a bearish indicator for the digital currency. Buying support seems to have gone missing as price action seems to suggest sellers having the upper hand at the current moment of time. The price action has also formed a triangle breakdown on the daily charts and the BTC/USD can see levels of $480 in the very near term.
Traders can go short on the BTC/USD from current levels with an intermediate target of $480 with a strict stop loss at $553.
Traders should enter long positions only if the BTC/USD trades back above the $552 with a primary target at $572 with a stop loss at $521 levels.
