Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 0.0001617, KMD/BTC closed below it after spiking as high as 0.0001670 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 0.0001516 in the previous session, KMD found buyers again around the same price level today at 0.0001515.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
