Since the beginning of this week, the main cryptocurrencies have continued to decline, as traders are concerned about regulation tightening. The news feed:

Last week, the Consensus 2018 blockchain-conference took place in New York. Analysts assumed that the conference would positively affect the dynamics of the cryptocurrency market. However, this did not happen.

The Argentinian Banco Masventas, announced the launch of international transfer service using Bitcoin. Bank entered into agreement with the Bitex exchange.

Today, the BTC/USD quotes on the Bitstamp exchange are testing a mark of $7,900.

The current technical pattern on BTC/USD
  • Support levels: 7800.00, 7200.00, 6600.00
  • Resistance levels: 8200.00, 9000.00, 9400.00
BTC/USD

At the moment, the BTC/USD quotes have approached the support level of 7800.00. The 8200.00 mark is already a "mirror" resistance. The trading instrument has the potential for further decrease. Indicators point to the power of sellers:
- The price has fixed below 50 MA and 200 MA;
- The MACD histogram is located in the negative zone and continues to decrease.

We recommend opening positions in the direction of the current trend.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes below the support level of 7800.00, it is necessary to consider sales of BTC/USD. The immediate goal of profit taking is the demand zone of 7400.00-7200.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes above the "mirror" resistance of 8200.00, correction movement is expected. The movement is tending potentially to 8800.00-9000.00.

When following the positions, we recommend using a trailing stop.
