STEEM Trading Update by @cryptopassion

The STEEM broke our support line yesterday but we can see that the market didn't give up yet :

We are staying close to that line which is now a resistance line and we already tested it one time (green circle).

If the BTC could make a little up, I think we could easly go back upper of that line. However, if the drop should continue on the BTC, we don't have any important support on the STEEM before the previous low arounf 2.75$. I hope we won't reach these levels but keep in mind this is a possibility.
