There are aggressive sales in the "digital currency" market. Over the past week, the drop in the BTC/USD quotes exceeded 20%. The capitalization of Bitcoin fell to $75 billion. The cryptocurrency has set new annual lows. Let’s consider the current news feed.

According to FCA executive director of strategy and competition, Christopher Woolard, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) considers a ban on the sale of certain types of cryptocurrency derivatives, including CFDs, options, futures, to retail investors.

Today, the BTC/USD quotes are testing a mark of $4,400 at Bitstamp.

  • Resistance levels: 4700.00, 5000.00, 5400.00
BTC/USD

The Bitcoin rate continues to show negative dynamics. At the moment, the BTC/USD quotes are consolidating. The key support and resistance levels are 4200.00 and 4700.00, respectively. Indicator signals are different:

- The price has fixed below 50 MA and 200 MA;
- MACD has started to rise.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes below the support level of 4200.00, a further fall in the BTC/USD quotes is expected. The movement is tending to 4000.00-3800.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes above 4700.00, a correction movement is expected. The immediate goal for profit taking is a round level of 5000.00.

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