Bulls licking their wounds ahead of Bakkt launch – Confluence Detector

Fibo Quantum

  • Cryptocurrencies have tumbled down and are trying to find a bottom.
  • News regarding the highly-anticipated Bakkt launch may boost the bulls.
  • Here are the next levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.

Consolidation has ended in a climbdown – not a recovery. After several days of limited movements, digital coins have succumbed to selling pressure with Bitcoin falling below $9,500, Ethereum cracking under $170, and Ripple struggling with $0.2500. 

Can cryptocurrencies climb back up? Bulls are licking their wounds and a ray of light comes from the upcoming launch of Bakkt. While the official debut is due on September 23, clients may begin making warehouse deposits as early as September 6 – next Friday. 

Bakkt enables settling Bitcoin futures physically – a stark difference from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) which are cash-settled. The launch may draw more money to cryptocurrencies. 

What levels should we watch?
