- Cryptocurrencieshad a positive weekend after grinding lower beforehand.
- Bitcoin and Ripple enjoy significant support while Ethereum is somewhat less supported.
- Here are the levels to watch according to the Confluence Detector.
After cryptos received no love from technical levels on Valentine's Day, they enjoyed a better weekend, advancing nicely to higher ground. The upwards move is quite favorable for digital coins that have improved their technical standing.
One of the positive stories came from Japan's giant Rakuten. The e-commerce behemoth appears to support cryptocurrencies in its new payment application. The Rakuten Pay application underwent a significant update and seemed to support cryptos according to an analysis of its new structure.
What's next? The technical levels are promising.
This is what the Crypto Confluence Detector shows
BTC/USD is well supported and can think of topping $4,000
Bitcoin enjoys robust support centered around $3,620 where we see the convergence of the Simple Moving Average 10-4h, the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week, the SMA 501d, the SMA100-15m, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, and the Bollinger Band 1h-Middle.

BTC/USD faces weak resistance at $3,905 where the Pivot Point one-month Resistance 1 awaits the pair.
The high target is $4,123, the previous month's top.
ETH/USD may reach resistance soon
Ethereum is shooting higher but faces fierce resistance around $147.25, where it faces the meeting point of the PP 1m-R1 and the BB 15-minutes Upper.
