- One of the three Bitcoin ETF proposal under the SEC’s review has been withdrawn prior to the final ruling.
- Bitcoin price needs to rise above the hurdles at $10,253 and $10360 to be able to focus on higher levels towards $11,000.
Bitcoin appears to be stabilizing above $10,200 despite the news that VanEck has withdrawn its Bitcoin exchange-traded fund proposal. The Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States was preparing to give its final verdict on whether to reject or approve the ETF product on October 18. There are still two more Bitcoin ETFs in review.
The granddaddy of Bitcoin is showing resilience by ignoring the news of the withdrawal. However, Bitcoin’s performance still trails that of the major altcoins including Ethereum and Ripple. Ethereum managed to rise above $200 resistance an even test $215 hurdle while Ripple spiked incredibly above $0.30.
Bitcoin price confluence levels
The confluence detector tool places the first resistance at $10,253, although Bitcoin is trading at $10,206. Forming the resistance at $10,253 is a cluster of technical indicators including the previous low one-hour, SMA 5 four-hour, previous high 15-mins, SMA 5 15-mins, SMA 100 15-mins, Bollinger Band one-day middle, SMA 5 one-hour and SMA 200 four-hour among others.
Clearing this resistance will allow the buyers to focus on the next key hurdle at $10,360 highlighted by both the SMA 100 four-hour and the pivot point one-day R2. On the brighter side, Bitcoin path to $11,000 will remain relatively smooth as weak resistance hurdle will be encountered at $10,466 and $10,572.
Glancing lower, support areas are scarce for the largest crypto on the market. Initial anchorage is expected at $10,174. Converging here are the Bollinger Band four-hour lower, Pivot Point one-day S1 and the previous low one-day. Other weak support areas include $10,041 and $9,405.
