Last two weeks, the BTC/USD quotes are in a sideways trend. At the moment, the key support and resistance levels are 9800.00 and 10400.00, respectively. Cryptocurrency has the potential for further correction. Indicators do not give accurate signals:
- 50 MA has crossed 200 MA;
- 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 9800.00, further correction of the BTC/USD quotes is expected. The movement is tending to 9400.00-9000.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes above 10400.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open long positions. The target movement level is 10900.00-11200.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
