BTC/USD

Bitcoin is in a sideways trend. Unidirectional trends are not observed. At the moment, the key support and resistance levels are 8600.00 and 9100.00, respectively. A trading instrument has the potential for recovery. Indicators do not send accurate signals:
- The price 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 above the resistance level of 9100.00, the BTC/USD quotes are expected to grow. The movement is tending to 9600.00-10000.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below 8600.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to the round level of 8000.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
