BTC/USD

Currently, the BTC/USD quotes are in a sideways trend. The cryptocurrency is testing strong enough support and resistance levels: 13500.00 and 15500.00, respectively. The BTC/USD quotes have the potential for further recovery.

The price is testing 50 MA, which acts as a fairly strong dynamic support.

The MACD histogram is in the positive zone and continues to rise, indicating the power of the buyers.

Trading recommendations

We recommend you to open positions from the key levels. If the price fixes above the resistance level of 15500.00, it is necessary to consider purchases of BTC/USD. The closest target for fixing profits is the mark of 17000.00. In the medium term, quotes can reach historic highs (19500.00-20000.00).

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the support level of 13500.00, a further correction of BTC/USD is not excluded. The movement is tending to 11500.00.
