Indicators do not send accurate signals. The price has fixed between 50 MA and 200 MA, which are strong dynamic levels of support and resistance.

The MACD histogram is located in the negative zone.

Trading recommendations

We recommend you to open positions from the key levels. If the price fixes above the resistance level of 12000.00, it is necessary to consider buying BTC/USD. The immediate goal of fixing profits is a "mirror" resistance of 14000.00. The movement is tending potentially to 17000.00-19000.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the round level of 10000.00, a further correction of BTC/USD is expected. When following the positions, we recommend using a trailing stop. Confirmations and entry points to the market should be looked for on lower timeframes.
