  • Resistance levels: 9600.00, 10000.00

At the moment, "digital gold" is in a sideways trend. Unidirectional trends are not observed. BTC/USD quotes are testing local support and resistance levels: 9100.00 and 9600.00, respectively. A trading instrument has the potential for further recovery. Indicators do not give accurate signals:
- The price has crossed 50 MA;
- The MACD histogram is located near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 9600.00, further growth of BTC/USD quotes is expected. The movement is tending to 10000.00-10400.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below 9100.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to 8700.00-8200.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
