BTC/USD: Bitcoin prices continued to downtrend for the third consecutive day, during late European session Friday, tracking pessimism from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) annual enforcement report, where it penned down several regulatory actions against the ICOs and digital assets taken so far this year. At the time of writing, BTC/USD fell 1.55 percent to 5,647.50. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $5,000.00 and resistance at $6,000.00.

Market Update: According to a report from CoinTelegraph, "Crypto loans company Salt Lending Holdings Inc., once associated with high-profile crypto industry stalwart Erik Voorhees, is facing a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) probe over its 2017 $50 million token sale."

At the time of writing, BCH/USD plunged 2.25 percent to $385.02. Meanwhile, the near-term support is seen at $350.00 and resistance at $450.00.
