- the price has fixed above 50 MA and 200 MA;
- MACD has started to rise.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 4100.00, further growth of the cryptocurrency exchange rate is expected. The movement is tending to 4400.00-4800.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below 3800.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to 3400.0-3200.0.

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