Now, in spite of the bullish condition, the market seemed more inclined towards a profitable short position on the charts. For shorting the price at the moment, entry at $11,619 could be placed with a take profit order at $11,398. The stop loss should be placed at around $11,655 to attain a risk/reward ratio of 6.07x.
