(Kitco News) - Bitcoin-U.S. dollar prices are sharply lower again in early U.S. trading Monday and dropped to another 2.5-month low. Major technical damage has been inflicted recently. Prices late last week fell below what was critical chart support at the December low. More selling pressure is likely in the near term, with the next downside target being the $5,500 area. It will take a move in prices above chart resistance at $11,000 to give the bulls some technical strength to then stabilize the market. Stay tuned!
