BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Ranging
On October 18, the cryptocurrency made an attempt to rally to the north by the formation of a bullish engulfing bar but the bears rejected the bullish movement by the formation of bearish inside bar that returned the BTC price below the resistance level of $6,439 and it started consolidation.
The pair is ranging between the resistance level of $6,439 and support level of $6,286. Neither bears nor bulls have enough momentum to rally the coin from this zone. Only a radical fundamental event can forcefully bring about a significant rally in the market.
Should the bulls gather enough momentum and break the resistance level of $6,439, BTC will rally to the north toward the resistance level of $6,609. In case the bears defend the resistance level of $6,609 and the price bounces back, traders should initiate short trades and stop-loss orders above the $6,609 price level. You can exit your short trades at the support level of $6,286 or when the price reverses.
At the same time, if the bear pushes the BTC price and breaks the support level of $6,286, the coin will find its low at the support level of $6137. However, the RSI period 14 is above 40 levels and the signal line point to the south indicates a sell signal.
