BTC/USD

Last two weeks, the BTC/USD quotes have been in a sideways trend. At the moment, the key support and resistance levels are 9500.00 and 10800.00, respectively. Cryptocurrency has the potential for further correction. Indicators do not send accurate signals:
- The price has crossed 50 MA;
- The MACD is near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes below the support level of 9500.00, a further correction of the BTC/USD quotes is expected. The movement is tending to 8500.00-8000.00.

Alternative option. If the price fixes above the mark of 10800.00, one should look for entry points to the market to open long positions. The target movement level is 11600.00-12000.00.

When tracking positions, one should use a trailing stop.
