BTC/USD

The BTC/USD quotes are in a sideways trend. At the moment, the key trading range is 6400.00-6600.00. Trading instrument is tending to recover. Indicators do not send accurate signals:

- The price has crossed 50 MA and 200 MA;
- MACD histogram is located near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 6600.00, the BTC/USD quotes are expected to grow. The closest goal for profit taking is the offer zone of 6800.00-6900.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the support level of 6400.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to 6200.00-6000.00.

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