BTC/USD $7,735, then $8,161

The price of Bitcoin faces a challenge at $7,735 which is the convergence of the Simple Moving Average 100'15m, the Fibonacci 38.2 percent one'day, the Simple Moving Average 100'4h, the Fibonacci 23.6 percent one'month, and the Pivot Point one'week Resistance 1. 

Upon a break of that line, the next significant line is $8,161 which is the Fibonacci 38.2 percent one-month. Further up, it is worth noting $8,332 which is the confluence of the Simple Moving Average 200-4h and the Pivot Point one-week Resistance 3. 

On the downside, BTC/USD has strong support at $7,479 which is the congestion of the Simple Moving Average 10-one-day, the SMA 200-1h, the SMA 50-4h, the Fibonacci 161.8 percent one-day, and the Fibonacci 23.6 percent one-week. It is closely followed by $7,394 which is the confluence of the Bolinger Band 1h-Lower, the Fibonacci 38.2 percent one-week. $7,053 is the meeting point of the one-month and one-week lows.

The Confluence Detector finds exciting opportunities using Technical Confluences. The TC is a tool to locate and point out those price levels where there is a congestion of indicators, moving averages, Fibonacci levels, Pivot Points, etc. Knowing where these congestion points are located is very useful for the trader, and can be used as a basis for different strategies.

This tool assigns a certain amount of “weight” to each indicator, and this “weight” can influence adjacents price levels. These weightings mean that one price level without any indicator or moving average but under the influence of two “strongly weighted” levels accumulate more resistance than their neighbors. In these cases, the tool signals resistance in apparently empty areas.
