BTC/USD

Since the beginning of this week, the trading instrument has been moving in a flat. The BTC/USD quotes are testing the key support and resistance levels: 6200.00 and 6400.00, respectively. The technical pattern signals a possible correction. At the moment, a classic reversal formation of the price and MACD histogram divergence, has been formed.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 6400.00, correction movement is expected. The closest target for profit taking is the 6600.00 mark. The target movement level is the offer zone of 6800.00-6900.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the support level of 6200.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to 6000.00-5900.00.

When following the positions, one should use a trailing stop.
