Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum: Libra members may quit, but cryptos are up – levels

  • Facebook's Libra members are considering quitting due to government pressure.
  • Cryptocurrencies have been recovering with Bitcoin topping $10,000 once again.
  • Here are the next levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.

Some members of Facebook's Libra have been considering quitting – before the project took off. According to the Financial Times, the regulatory scrutiny that the social media behemoth has deterred partners. One is quoted:

I think it's going to be difficult for partners who want to be seen as in compliance [with their own regulators] to be out there supporting [Libra]

Facebook has declined to comment and plans to launch its global blockchain project seem to remain intact.

For up and running cryptocurrency projects, the past 24 hours have been better, with prices recovering after a gradual decline earlier in the week. What levels should we watch?

This is what the Crypto Confluence Detector shows in its latest update:

BTC/USD has clear targets

Bitcoin faces initial resistance at $10,327, which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week, the Bollinger Band 4h-Middle, the Simple Moving Average 200-1h, the SMA 50-4h, and the Pivot Point one-day Resistance 1. 

Further up, the king of cryptos faces a challenge at $10,800, where we note the confluence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week and the PP 1d-R3. 

BTC/USD has support at $10,060, where we see the BB 1h-Lower, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month, and the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day converge. 

The next considerable cushion is only at $9,320, where we see the PP 1d-Support 3 and the PP 1w-S1 meet.
