Bitcoin confluence levels 

There are no significant technical barriers above the current price, which turns the upside into a path of least resistance. However, we will need to see a confirmation that the bull’s trend is still on track. 

  • The first resistance is created by a confluence of an upper boundary of 4-hour Bollinger Band, midline of 15-min Bollinger Band, SMA10 1-hour and the highest level of the previous day on approach to $5,300. Once it is cleared, the price will be ready to another attempt at $5,348 handle. 
  • The next barrier is seen at $5,550 (Pivot Point 1-week Resistance 1). 
  • Below the current price, the first support area is registered on approach to $5,200 (SMA10 4-hour, 38.2% Fibo retracement daily) 
  • It is followed by critical $5,000, strengthened by a confluence of strong technical indicators including DMA5, 23.8% Fibo retracement weekly and the lowest level of the previous day.
