XRP Trading Close To $0.30, How Long Will The Support Hold?



XRP has retraced on its chart over the last few days although the coin had attempted to head upwards, the bulls tired out.

XRP at the moment has secured $0.30 as a strong support level. Price of the asset has to rise above its immediate resistance over the upcoming trading sessions in order for the bulls to take charge.

If the coin fails to sustain the current price level, a fall beneath $0.30 is just a matter of time. Technical outlook for the coin painted mixed signals on the chart.

Some of the indicators hinted towards a rise in bullish price action.

Over the last 24 hours the coin depreciated by 4.4%, invalidating most gains XRP logged in the past week. Sellers continue to dominate the market however, buyers were also trying to re-enter as the current price has created a demand zone for the asset.

For XRP to negate its bearish thesis, strength from the broader market will be required. The global cryptocurrency market cap today is $955 Billion with a 3.1% negative change in the last 24 hours.
