  • The price is holding near the crucial support zone extending since February.

XRP price hovers near an inflection point

XRP price surged nearly 68% after falling from the swing highs of 1.01 made in late December. This upswing in the price pushed the token to test the $0.90 level. However, with the broader market structure, and profit-booking by investors, the XRP price retreated to the swing lows of $0.62 in February. Since then XRP has been trading in a short-term trading range of $0.70 and $0.90.

In addition to that, the XRP price remains pressured below the critical 200-day and 50-day EMAs (exponential moving average) since April 6. This makes the recovery of the asset more challenging.

Now, the price holds near the reliable support level of around $0.72. If it closes below $0.70 on the weekly basis would result in the piercing of the lower trading range.

The price could plunge toward the horizontal support zone at $0.62 followed by the lows of January 24 at $0.55.

On the flip side, if the price manages to close above the session low then it would extend the consolidation phase. In that case, the odds might get skewed on the side of the bulls, and could end in bouncing back to the psychological $0.80 level.

As of publication time, XRP/USD is trading at $0.72, down 1.20% for the day.

Technical indicators:
