XRP/USD Daily Chart: Ranging
XRP/USD Daily Chart
XRP fell to lows of $1.12 during the Sunday crash before rebounding to Monday’s highs of $1.55. Bears are consolidating the sharp fall on XRP/USD at $1.34 with today’s decline marking the 5th consecutive day.
XRP may at this point extend its sideways course while pursuing the $1.55 barrier. The short-term oscillators emphasize the pause in the market but lean towards a mixed bias with the downward sloping RSI hovering near the 60 marks.
On the upside, the first barrier for XRP bulls may be the $1.55 barrier, with a break higher paving the way for the $1.75-$1.83 territory before a retest of the yearly high at $1.98. Alternatively, a downside break below $1.22 could open the door for another test of $1.12. If sellers pierce below it, that would reinforce the negative bias and turn the focus to $0.83 and the MA 50 at $0.73.
XRP/USD 4-Hour Chart: Ranging
XRP/USD 4-Hour Chart
XRP is consolidating below the 4-hour MA 50 ($1.56) after slightly improving from a recently formed floor at the $1.13 level. Momentum oscillators paint a mixed picture, with the RSI still in a bearish territory at 43 despite a strong rebound off the oversold zone. A significant positive impetus is necessary to drive XRP price above the restrictive MA 50 at $1.56.Should this occur, XRP buyers may quickly be challenged by a key resistance section from $1.75 to $1.89.
Nonetheless, even triumphing over this, a push past the yearly highs at $1.98 would be necessary for the next leg of the uptrend to resume. For the slanted barrier to secure XRP/USD negative trajectory, it will need to redirect the XRP price beneath the $1.13 level. Steering lower, the $1 psychological level may try to impede negative pressures from pushing the price towards the $0.8 and $0.68 barrier from March. That said, only a move above the MA 50 ($1.56) would turn the neutral to bearish picture back to positive.
