BTC/USD

At the moment, the cryptocurrency is consolidating. The key trading range is 6600.00-6900.00. In the near future, we do not exclude the further growth of the BTC/USD quotes. A number of the Price Action patterns of "Inside Bar" confirm the signal. The MACD indicator has moved to the positive zone and continues to rise, which signals the power of buyers.

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

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 6900.00, further recovery of the Bitcoin rate is expected. The closest target for profit-taking is the 7200.00-7400.00 offer zone. The movement is tending to a round level of 7800.00-8000.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the level of 6600.00, it is necessary to consider sales of BTC/USD. The target movement level is 6300.00-6000.00.
