Bitcoin confluence levels


A glance at the confluence detector tool by FXStreet shows Bitcoin hauled between key support and a strong resistance zones. The first resistance at $10,603.74 has an intense concentration of technical levels ranging from the SMA 10 15-mins, Bollinger Band 1-h middle, 38.2% daily, SMA 100 15-mins, previous high 15-mins and the SMA 200 4-hour among others.

Bitcoin requires a catalyst to give it a kick above this key resistance for a revisit of the levels above $11,000. Besides, the path is almost clear until the next hurdle at $11,262. Further up, $11,591 will hinder growth towards the $12,000 psychological level.

Importantly, the most significant support is placed at $10,494. Converging here are several indicators including the Fibonacci 38.2% 1-min, Fibo 23.6% 1-day and the BB Band 15-mins lower curve. In the event declines progress, $10,274, $10,052 and $9,396 will come in handy to cushion the dips.
