- the price has fixed above 50 MA and 200 MA;

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 4100.00, further growth of the cryptocurrency exchange rate is expected. The movement is tending to 4400.00-4800.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below 3800.00, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The movement is tending to 3400.0-3200.0.

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