Bitcoin is hovering around its all-time highs once more as bulls attempt to set a new record. More buyers might be waiting at nearby support levels marked by the Fibonacci retracement tool.

Price is already finding some support at the 38.2% level but could still dip to the 50% Fib that lines up with the mid-channel area of interest. A larger pullback could reach the 61.8% level at $17,819 or the channel bottom closer to $17,000.

Moving averages are making a bullish crossover to confirm that the uptrend is likely to carry on. Also, Stochastic just pulled out of the oversold region to reflect a return in buying pressure.

ETH/USD: 1-hour

Ethereum already seems to have completed its retest of a broken resistance level and is resuming its climb to the next upside targets.

The Fibonacci extension tool shows the levels that bulls might be aiming for, and price is already hitting the 50% mark that lines up with the swing high.

Stronger bullish momentum could take it up to the 61.8% Fib extension at $639.18 or all the way to the full extension at $735. After all, the gap between the moving averages is widening to reflect strengthening buying pressure.

Litecoin also completed its break-and-retest of a former resistance zone and is now testing the ceiling at the 50% Fibonacci extension.

Stochastic is turning higher and has plenty of room to move north, so price could follow suit while buyers have the upper hand. This could be enough to take litecoin to the next bullish target at the 61.8% level at $97 or the full extension at $117.

The 100 SMA is above the 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the upside.

XRP/USD: 1-hour

XRP is still in consolidation mode as it formed lower highs and higher lows inside a symmetrical triangle pattern on the 1-hour time frame.

A break above the triangle top around .6675 could be followed by a rally of the same height as the chart pattern. On the flip side, a move below support at .6000 could trigger a selloff of the same size as the triangle.

The 100 SMA is just slightly above the 200 SMA, for now, to suggest that buyers have the upper hand, and these indicators are holding as a dynamic support.
