Bitcoin confluence levels


The unique confluence detector tool places the initial resistance at $8,281. The resistance in this zone emanates from a cluster of indicators including the ten Simple Moving Average (SMA) 15-minutes, the previous high 15-mins, previous high one-hour, the Bollinger Band 15-minutes upper and the previous high four-hour.

Although the above zone is the strongest resistance at the moment, the movement above it will come face to face with the medium resistance at $8,538. On the brighter side, trading above $8,538 is likely to pave the way for gains above $9,000.

On the flip side, support is quite limited. Although, $8,195 will try to hold in the event a reversal occurs towards $8,000. Some of the indicators here are the SMA ten one-day, SMA 100 four-hour, SMA 50 four-hour and Fibonacci 38.25% one-day.
