BTC/USD daily confluence detector

The daily confluence detector makes for some very promising reading. There is only one resistance level of note at $8,600, which has the 5-day Simple Moving Average (SMA 5), SMA 200, one-day Bollinger Band middle curve and 15-mine previous low. If the bulls can get past this level, then they should be able to make it to $9,000 with little difficulty.

On the downside, support level lies at $8,480, which has the one-day Fibonacci 38.2% retracement level and one-month Fibonacci 23.6% retracement level.
