Bitcoin fell from $9,600 to $8,100 oVer the weekend and this caused XRP to drop beneath the 100-days EMA and fall beneath $0.20. It continued to fall until reaching the support at $0.18 where a rebound higher was seen.
The coin has now bounced back above $0.20 and now faces resistance at the $0.201 level (bearish .382 Fib Retracement).
Short term prediction: NEUTRAL
The break beneath $0.2 turned XRP into a neutral trading condition. It must now break the resistance at $0.225 to turn bullish again. IT would need to close beneath $0.18 to be in danger of turning bearish.
