XRP suffered a 6% price decline over the past 24 hours of trading as it failed to break above resistance at $0.1667. It had made an attempt to break above this level over the past 2 days, however, the sellers seemed to always step back in to push the market lower again.
The cryptocurrency is now trading within the same range that it has been trading within for the past 9 days. It must break and close above/below this range to dictate which direction it would be heading toward next. If it does break and close above $0.166 it has the potential to continue toward $0.20.
XRP Price Analysis
XRP/USD – Daily CHART – SHORT TERM
Taking a look at the daily chart above, we can see that XRP managed to find strong support at the $0.14 level during the market collapse in March. This support is provided by a downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level. It had dipped even further lower but managed to rebound from support at $0.111 which is provided by a downside 1.618 Fib Extension.
It has been trading within a range between $0.1667 and $0.14 for the past 9-days now and must break this range to dictate the next direction of the market.
Short term prediction: BEARISH/NEUTRAL
XRP is trading within a range so it could be considered as neutral, however, the price drop seen in March is too large to ignore so it has to be classed as bearish until we see a break toward the upside of the range.
If the sellers push lower, the first level of support is located at $0.14. Beneath this, support is expected at $0.127m $0.12, $0.1116, and $0.10.
