- Confluence detector predicts four strong support level
Bitcoin has been moving up quite rapidly of recent. We have seen several price fluctuations with corresponding resistances and supports at various levels. Bitcoin recorded an incredible percentage rise in price recently and this has caused its whole market cap to double up in the last few days.
Within the last 5 days, bitcoin rose steadily from around $7500 and faced a major resistance shortly after crossing the $9500 corner. This resistance proved temporary as bitcoin was able to rise again to surpass the resistance at that level. This saw bitcoin at $10,000 for the first time in about a year. The uptrend continued to show more positivity until each unit of the coin recorded a value of $11,000 as at Tuesday to an all-time high of 15 months.
BTC/USD rose from $12,050to $13,400 in the early hours of Wednesday. Earlier, the price spiked from $11,000 to $11,700 this Tuesday. The bullish signal should have enough strength to keep the price above $13,000, but faced strong resistance at $12,700, as shown on the daily confluence detector. The detector also indicated four strong support levels to support the price from a drastic crash.
