Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum: Cryptos climbed over critical levels, ready for a weekend rally?- Confluence Detector

  • Cryptos seem to have bottomed out with Ethereum leading the charge.
  • Technical levels are finally looking better.
  • Here are the levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector, our proprietary tool.

Cryptos are finally rising. Bitcoin marked a double-bottom instead of another lower low. Ethereum is surging and Ripple is also on a roll.

News that SEC Commissioners said he thinks regulators will eventually approve a Bitcoin ETF may be behind the rally. Perhaps the upcoming delayed deployment of Constantinople for Ethereum is the reason.

In any case, long days of listless downdrift may be nearing their end ahead of the weekend. Are cryptos ready to rally? The technical picture has certainly improved, with more support than resistance seen on the charts.

The next support is also significant and close by. $3,370 is the convergence of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-day, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, the SMA 5-4h, the SMA 10-4h, the SMA 50-1h, the SMA 100-15m, the BB 1h-Middle, the SMA 200-15m, and the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day.

Resistance lines are few and far between. At $3,636 we find the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month and the Bollinger Band one-day Upper.

Weak resistance awaits at $110.45 which is where the previous 4h-high and the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week converge. 

The upside target for ETH/USD is $116.50, where we see the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month.

XRP/USD more complicated, but more support than resistance

Ripple has more significant resistance than its peers, but this is nonetheless weaker than support. Support for XRP/USD awaits at $0.2922 where we see the confluence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day, the SMA 10-4h, the SMA 200-15m, the SMA 50-1h, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day. 

The most significant support awaits at $0.2845 which is a dense cluster including last month's low, the Pivot Point one-week Support 3, the BB one-day Lower, the Fibonacci 161.8% one-day, and the BB 4h-Lower.
