  • Resistance levels: 3480.00, 3600.00, 3720.00
BTC/USD

The Bitcoin rate continues to consolidate near the key lows. Over the past two weeks, the trading instrument has formed quite strong support and resistance levels: 3350.00 and 3480.00, respectively. Indicator signals are different:
- the price is testing 50 MA, which currently acts as dynamic resistance;
- the MACD histogram is located near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes below the support level of 3350.00, the BTC/USD quotes are expected to fall. The movement is tending to the round level of 3000.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes above the 3480.00 mark, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open long positions. The target movement level is 3600.00-3700.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
