BTC/USD still has one immediate hurdle

Bitcoin has been leading the charge forward, but the granddaddy of cryptocurrencies is now the worst-positioned coin among the majors. It needs to convincingly overcome the dense cluster of lines awaiting around $8,490. This includes the Bollinger Band 4h-Upper, the Pivot Point one-month Resistance 2, the previous week's high, the SMA 50-15m, and more.

If it runs higher, the next target is $9,155, which is the meeting point of the PP one-week R2 and the PP one-month R3. 

BTC/USD has significant support at around $8,220, which is the convergence of the PP one-day R1, the Fibonacci 23.% one-week, the previous daily high, the SMA 50-1h, the SMA 200-15m, and more. 

The next cushion is at $8,050, where we note the confluence of the SMA 200-1h, the SMA 50-4h, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-week, the PP one-day S1, and the previous daily low. 

ETH/USD has a robust base and eyes $170

Ethereum is well-positioned to continue higher. Vitalik Buterin's brainchild enjoys massive support of around $149.60, which is a juncture including the previous 4h-low, the PP one-day R2, the PP one-month R1, the BB one-day Upper, the BB 4h-Upper, and the SMA 10-1h. 

It enjoys another considerable cushion at $139.50, which is the confluence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-month, the SMA 50-one-day, the PP one-day S2, and the Fibonacci 61.8%. 

Looking up, initial weak resistance awaits ETH/USD at $153, where the previous monthly high and the BB 1h-Upper meet. 

The upside target is $170, where the PP one-month R2 hits the price.

XRP/USD targets $0.2437

Ripple, similar to Ethereum, enjoys substnail support and may target higher levels. It is trading just above $0.2186, which is the convergence of the PP one-day R2, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week, and the SMA 50-15m. 

A dense support cluster awaits it at $0.2117, which includes the SMA 5-one-day, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-day, the Fibonacci 61.8% one-month, the SMA 200-1h, and the SMA 50-4h. 

XRP/USD's first target is $0.2330, which is last month's peak, and then $0.2437,  where we see the confluence of the Pivot Point one-week Resistance 2 and the 100-day Simple Moving Average.
