  • Resistance levels: 3650.00, 3750.00, 3900.00
BTC/USD

There is an ambiguous technical pattern in the trading instrument. Bitcoin is being traded in a flat. The key support and resistance levels are 3525.00 and 3650.00, respectively. Indicators do not send accurate signals:
- 50 MA has crossed 200 MA;
- MACD histogram is in the negative zone.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 3650.00, further growth of the BTC/USD quotes is expected. The movement is tending to 3750.00-3900.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below 3525.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The target movement level is 3400.00-3300.00.

When following positions, one should use a trailing stop.
