Let’s consider current news feed on the cryptocurrency market.

The Indonesian Trade Ministry's Futures Exchange Supervisory Board recognized the cryptocurrency as a commodity and allowed crypto futures trading. This was reported by Dharma Yoga, the head of Bappebti market supervision and development bureau. It should be noted that the decree was signed after a four-month study on this issue.

Meanwhile, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that Valerie A. Szczepanik was appointed as Senior Advisor for Digital Assets and Innovation for Division Director Bill Hinman and Associate Director of the Division of Corporation Finance.

Today, the BTC/USD quotes on the Bitstamp exchange are testing a mark of $7,700.

The current technical pattern on BTC/USD
  • Support levels: 7400.00, 7000.00
  • Resistance levels: 7800.00, 8200.00, 8600.00
BTC/USD

Since the beginning of this month, the BTC/USD quotes have been in a sideways trend. A unidirectional trend is not observed. During this period, the following key support and resistance levels were formed: 7400.00 and 7800.00, respectively. Indicators do not send accurate signals:
- The price has fixed between 50 MA and 200 MA;
- The MACD histogram is near the 0 mark.

Financial market participants expect additional drivers. We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the key resistance level of 7800.00, the "digital gold" prices are expected to rise. The movement is tending potentially to 8200.00-8600.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below a mark of 7400.00, it is necessary to consider sales of BTC/USD. The immediate goal of profit taking is 7200.00-7000.00.
