BTC/USD

Last two weeks, the BTC/USD quotes have been in a sideways trend. Currently, local support and resistance levels are 3760.00 and 3880.00, respectively. Cryptocurrency is tending to recover. Indicators do not send accurate signals:
- The price has crossed 50 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 3880.00, the BTC/USD quotes are expected to grow. The movement is tending to 4000.00-4150.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the mark of 3760.00, you need to look for entry points to the market to open short positions. The target movement level is 3670.00-3560.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
