- Japanese FSA announcement knocks market sentiment.

- Chart levels have proved reliable to date.

Bitcoin Hits a Seven-Month Low

Bitcoin traded at a new seven-month low of $5,769 on Sunday as sellers continued to dominate. The BTC price has picked back up to currently trade around $6,150, but the seven-month low at $5,649 remains in sight and is likely to be tested again on the short-term. If this level is broken convincingly, prices are likely to dip below $5,000 with the September 15 low at $2,970 the eventual target.

The latest sell-off was sparked by news that the Japanese Financial Services Agency (FSA) demanded that six domestic cryptocurrency exchanges to strengthen money laundering controls and internal accounting. Japan’s largest exchange bitFlyer announced that it is suspending new accounts until it makes all the necessary changes.

Ripple, Ether, Litecoin – Chart Levels

We identified Ripple, Ether and Litecoin support levels on Friday and they held well in the face of the sell-off. The worry remains that with market sentiment still weak, and buyers absent, sellers could still move the market lower on small volume.
