We report the results of simultaneous multiwavelength observations of the X-ray transient source SWIFT J1753.5-0127 performed with INTEGRAL, RXTE, NTT, REM and VLA on 2005 August 10-12. The source, which underwent an X-ray outburst since 2005 May 30, was observed during the INTEGRAL Target of Opportunity program dedicated to new X-ray novae located in the Galactic Halo. Broad-band spectra and fast timing variability properties of SWIFT J1753.5-0127 are analyzed together with the optical, near

We show that the source was significantly detected up to 600 keV with Comptonization parameters and timing properties typical of the so-called Low/Hard State of black hole candidates. We build a spectral energy distribution and we show that SWIFT J1753.5-0127 does not follow the usual radio/X-ray correlation of X-ray binaries in the Low/Hard State. We give estimates of distance and mass. We conclude that SWIFT J1753.5-0127 belongs to the X-ray nova class and that it is likely a black hole candidate transient source of the Galactic Halo which remained in the Low/Hard State during its main outburst. We discuss our results within the context of Comptonization and jet models.
