Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD buyers’ focus stays on $9,000 – Confluence detector


  • The creator of Megaupload believes that the financial system is rotten and Bitcoin and crypto are the only sources of true financial freedom.
  • Bitcoin price only needs a push above the bump at $8,628 to pave the way for an impressively smooth ride towards $9,000.

Bitcoin price is mundanely stuck in the range between $8,500 and $8,600. The correction from Wednesday’s high around $8,712 tested the range support but the high congestion of buyers at the range support cushion the losses. On the upside, movement has been capped under $8,600.

Bitcoin is lethargic within the mentioned range, besides the confluence tool highlights $8,628 as the initial. BTC only needs a push above this zone to pave the way for a relatively smooth ride to the critical resistance at $8,972. On clearing this level, the buyers will easily jump above $9,000 and shift their focus towards $10,000.

On the other hand, support areas are not as strong as the resistance at $8,972. The first support is seen at $8,560 as highlighted using the pivot point one-week resistance one, Bollinger Band one-hour middle and SMA 10 15-minutes and SMA 50 15-mins among others. Also in line to offer support is $8,525 and $8,491.
