XRP Price Analysis
XRP/USD – Daily CHART – SHORT TERM
Analyzing the daily chart above, we can clearly see XRP rebounding from support at $0.181 during December 2019. The cryptocurrency returned here in January 2020 allowing it to bounce and to start the bullish run higher. This rebound allowed XRP to rise by a total of 61% in 2020 to reach the resistance at $0.29.
The cryptocurrency has fallen from here as it now trades at the $0.268 support.
Short term prediction: NEUTRAL
The rejection from the $0.29 level has now rendered XRP as a neutral market. The cryptocurrency will have to break and close above $0.29 to turn bullish again. On the other hand, if XRP falls beneath $0.24 (100-days EMA) the market will turn bearish.
Toward the downside, the first level of support lies at $0.264 (short term .382 Fib Retracement). This is quickly followed with additional strong support at $0.26 which is provided by the 200-days EMA.
If the sellers break beneath $0.26, added support is expected at $0.254 (.5 Fib Retracement), $0.244 (.618 Fib Retracement), and $0.24 (100-days EMA).
On the other hand, if the bulls can defend the $0.26 support and bounce higher, the first level of resistance lies at $0.28. This is followed by resistance at $0.286 and $0.29. If the buyers can drive above $0.29, higher resistance lies at $0.30, $0.308 and $0.3177.
The RSI has rolled over from extremely overbought conditions as it returns to the 50 level. We will be watching the RSI closely as a break beneath 50 will show a momentum shift as the bears begin to take charge.
Support: $0.264, $0.26, $0.254, $0.25
Resistance: $0.28, $0.286, $0.29, $0.30
