XRP price had a massive run to start off April with prices rising nearly 300% from $0.50 to $1.95. This rally was halted at the major resistance level of $1.95 as bears began to take control. For the last 4 days XRP has failed to break upwards out of its price channel. This bearish trend was sped up as BTC tumbled nearly 15% yesterday to $50,000.

While looking at the current price action of XRP, we can see that the bulls quickly gobbled up the low prices of XRP and the token has revived 25% off its lows. The major support level of $1.15 was also met with the bottom trend line of the descending price channel. This formed a strong bounce area for XRP to start its revival. As of now, immediate support for XRP stands at $1.30.

For XRP to continue its large time frame bullish trend, the top trend line of its channel needs to fully break. This top trend line is currently fluttering around the minor resistance level of $1.47. Once the price can break free of these two marks, the road is clear to have a try at the major resistance level of $1.64. As it currently stands, consolidation between $1.30 & $1.47 is expected as a large drop usually leads to coiling before reviving upwards.

The Stochastic RSI has began rising from a long 4 days of being in oversold conditions. This can signal power has begun to spike on the 4 HR time frame as bulls try to push XRP past its key levels. The current view of the MACD should be considered very bullish. The histogram (green & red bars) has began an upward trend in pursuit of ticking green. In addition, the blue MA is heading towards the orange MA eyeing a potential bullish cross.
