Market Overview

Analyzing the daily chart above, we can clearly see XRP struggling at the $0.20 level last week. The resistance here was provided by a bearish .382 Fib Retracement level that is measured from the February high to the March low.

After rolling over from this resistance, the cryptocurrency dropped into the support at $0.184 which is provided by the short term .236 Fibonacci Retracement level. It has also recently reached support at a rising trend line.

Short term prediction: NEUTRAL

XRP can pretty much be considered as neutral after trading sideways for over a week. However, if it was to drop beneath $0.184 and the rising support trend line then the market is likely to turn bearish.

If the sellers push lower, the first level of support lies at $0.18. Beneath this, support lies at $0.17 (.382 Fib Retracement), $0.159 (.5 Fib Retracement), and $0.148 (.618 Fib Retracement).

On the other side, if the bulls climb higher, the first level of resistance will be located at $0.20 (bearish .382 Fibonacci Retracement level). Above this, resistance lies at $0.211, $0.229 (bearish .5 Fib Retracement), and $0.24.
