- Cryptocurrencies have been enjoying an upbeat weekend, gaining ground.
- The top digital coins need to overcome critical levels in order to rally.
- Here are the next levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.
Stock markets were unable to respond to the developments at G-7 summit over the weekend, but crypto markets are always open and they moved to their own fiddle. Bitcoin has been on a recovery path – topping $10,000 and carrying the rest with it.
It is hard to point out any specific development that triggered the move, but it certainly is an upbeat sign as traders are returning from their vacations and getting ready for a busy September.
This is what the Crypto Confluence Detector shows in its latest update:
BTC/USD needs to overcome $10,695
Bitcoin has been struggling around $10,373, which is the convergence of the Simple Moving Average 5-15m, the Bollinger Band 15min-Middle, the SMA 10-15m, the SMA 5-1h, the SMA 10-1d, the SMA 10-1h, and the previous daily high.
The greater challenge awaits at $10,695, which is the meeting point of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week, the SMA 50-1d, and more. Breaking this level would unleash the upside.
