Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Fails to Find Support at $5,600
At the time of writing Bitcoin is trading down roughly 2% at its current price of $5,490. On Monday, Bitcoin incurred a relatively large amount of buying pressure that pushed its price to the mid-$5,600 region, at which point it faced increased selling pressure that drove its price back down to its current levels.
It is important to note that BTC is still trading up from its weekly lows of $5,230 and is just slightly below its one-month highs of $5,650, which were set yesterday.
Shayne Heffernan, spoke about Bitcoin’s current price action, explaining that he is closely watching to see how BTC responds to the $5,300, as a strong reaction to this price level may allow the crypto to form another leg up.
