Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD locked in a tight range – Confluence Detector

  • BTC/USD is vulnerable to further losses amid range-bound trading.
  • A sustainable move below $8,150 will take the price to $7,800.

Bitcoin (BTC) is glued to $8,300 level. The first cryptocurrency has been hovering around this barrier since Friday’s failed attempt to break above SMA200 (Simple Moving Average) daily. The coin topped at $8,800 and returned to the previous range in a matter of hours amid crypto whales activity. At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands at $8,3010,  mostly unchanged both on a day-on-day basis and since the beginning of Monday.

During early Monday hours BTC/USD has been locked in a range limited by $8,469 on the upside and $8,154 on the downside. The support located at $8,150 proved to be strong enough to keep the bears at bay; however, a weak upside momentum makes the coin vulnerable to further losses. Let’s have a closer look at the technical levels that may serve as resistance and support areas for the coin.

$8,700 - SMA200 (Simple Moving Average) daily, 161.8% Fibo projection daily;
$9,000 - psychological level, SMA200 four-hour, 38.2% Fibo retracement monthly.

Support levels
