- Cryptocurrencies took a quick breather but did not lose ground after the Sunday surge.
- All three digital coins enjoy strong support and have clear upside targets.
- Here are the levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.
The weekend may have been too long for cryptos -- especially for Bitcoin. Digital coins were not lazy on Sunday and shot higher, with BTC/USD topping $8,700. It did not stop and gradually edged higher. Ethereum and Ripple shortly followed.
After the previous rush higher, cryptocurrencies experienced a flash crash before stabilizing and racing higher. Will it happen again? While some market actors may want to take profits, digital coins have room to run higher -- they all have room to the upside and support on the downside.
This is what the Crypto Confluence Detector shows in its latest update:
BTC/USD supported at $8,820 and eyes $9,520
