Bitcoin (BTC) has been consolidating in a narrow range for the better part of the day. Bitcoin seems to be staying over the $10,300 price point. The coin marked a low of $10,080 prior ahead of moving to an intraday high of around $10,400 and is currently trading at $10,354, dispensing a tiny loss of 0.41% on the day.
The technical side of the market hasn’t changed much as the BTCUSD continues to hold below 50 periods EMA, which is extending strong resistance at 10,400.
Below this level (10,400), the Bitcoin is likely to go after 9,820 level as the RSI and Stochastics have entered the selling zone, crossing below 50 regions.

The leading cryptocurrency is likely to continue trading within this range. However, the bearish breakout can trigger sell-off until 9,890, and bullish breakout may lead it towards 10,789.
EUR/USD – Trading the Sideways Range
The single currency Euro continues to trade sideways within a narrow trading range of 1.166 and 1.1020. The pair rallied a bit on Monday from 1.1020 level.
At this point, I believe there is loads of resistance around 1.1060 level that will proceed to produce issues, so consequently, I predict that the market will run into many barriers.
The 1.11 EUR level extends massive resistance on the 4 hourly timeframes, and I think that the 50 days EMA moving towards that level will proceed to produce some hurdles for the Euro.
Considering this, I believe it’s implausible that we go much higher, and I will see for hints of exhaustion to take advantage of the market.

A day before, the EUR/USD completed bearish retracement at 1.1030 level and bounced off to trade at 1.1050 trading level. For now, the EUR/USD faces the initial resistance at the 1.1074/84 bands, the double top level completes, and this time it will become the triple top.
I would be bullish above 1.1035 level to target 1.1060 and 1.1100 in case of bullish breakout today.
