BTC/USD

Last two weeks, the BTC/USD quotes have been in a sideways trend. The trading instrument is testing key support and resistance levels: 6360.00 and 6480.00, respectively. In the near future, we do not exclude the Bitcoin rate recovery. Indicators do not send accurate signals:

- The price has crossed 50 MA and 200 MA;
- 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 6480.00, the BTC/USD quotes are expected to grow. The movement is tending to 6640.00-6800.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below 6360.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The target movement level is the demand zone of 6200.00-6100.00.

When following the positions, one should use a trailing stop.
