- Cryptocurrencies have emerged as winners in the Labor Day weekend.
- As liquidity returns to normal, bulls may seek to extend their gains.
- Here are the next levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.
Bitcoin has surged above $10,000 – and carried its peers with it. The move came after digital coins traded in low levels for several painful days.
Bakkt begins its soft launch on September 6, with the full launch on the 23. The new options initiative is backed by cash settlements – potentially resulting in funds flowing into cryptocurrencies. Preparations to Bakkt's launch may be behind the current rise.
Moreover, the ongoing trade war between the US and China is another potential upward driver. The world's largest economies have failed to schedule new talks so far.
This is what the Crypto Confluence Detector shows in its latest update:
