XRP/USD – Daily CHART – SHORT TERM
The daily chart above shows XRP climbing above the pivotal $0.30 level this week. It continued to climb further higher, breaking above strong resistance at $0.326 (bearish .382 Fib Retracement) until halting at resistance at $0.337.
It then went on to roll over as it plummetted back beneath $0.30. We can see that XRP is now finding support at $0.28, provided by a short term .5 Fib Retracement, however, the momentum has shifted toward the seller’s favor.
Short term prediction: NEUTRAL
XRP remains neutral at this moment in time after dropping back beneath $0.30. It would need to climb above $0.30 to turn bullish again.
If the sellers continue beneath $0.28, support is expected at $0.27, $0.268, and $0.264. The support at $0.264 is considered strong due to the fact that the 200-days EMA is here and it is further bolstered by a .618 Fib Retracement.
On the other hand, if the bulls can defend $0.28 and rebound higher, resistance lies at $0.29 and $0.30. Above this, additional resistance lies at $0.308, $0.3177, and $0.35.
The RSI has dropped beneath 50 as the bears take control over the market momentum.
Support: $0.28, $0.27, $0.268, $0.264, $0.26, $0.25, $0.243.
