This will prevent Bitcoin from developing into an enriched asset that can enable transactions from anywhere around the world.

When looking at the daily chart for the BTC/USD, one thing that is bothering many analysts is the fact that the digital currency has been unable to sustain itself above the $373 level. In the overnight session, the BTC/USD traded above that zone for most of the trading session but was met with heavy selling pressure at higher levels which drove prices below $373 an additional time.

Furthermore, its stochastic oscillator is on the verge of giving a sell signal, which will indicate that its momentum is shifting towards the sell side. Lastly, the BTC/USD’s relative strength index, is giving a sell sign and is continuing to trend lower, exhibiting no inherent strength.

Actionable Insight:

Short the BTC/USD at current levels for an intermediate target at $321, with a strict stop-loss above $378.

Long the BTC/USD if it moves above $381 for an intermediate target at $430, with a strict stop-loss below $353.
