The signals of the indicators are different. The price has fixed above 50 MA and 200 MA, which indicates the power of buyers.

The MACD histogram has begun to decline and moved to the negative zone, which signals a technical correction.

Trading recommendations

It is advisable to open positions in the direction of the current trend. If the price fixes above the resistance level of 7400.0, the further growth of BTC/USD is expected.

Alternative option. If the BTC/USD quotes overcome the "mirror" support level of 7100.0, a correction movement may develop on the trading instrument. The movement is tending to 6900.0-6800.0.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
