XRP/USD – Ripple Continues Sideways Trading In Consolidation

Over the past four days, XRP had rebounded from support at $0.18 (.236 Fib Retracement) and attempted higher toward $0.20. However, in yesterday’s trading session, the bulls failed to breach $0.196, which caused the coin to drop back toward $0.19.

The cryptocurrency has managed to maintain above a rising support trend line for the past month; however, a break beneath this trend line could cause XRP to drop toward the next support at $0.16 again.

XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction

If the sellers continue to push lower, the rising trend line should provide the first level of support. Beneath this, support lies at $0.18, $0.171, and $0.165 (.382 Fib Retracement).

Alternatively, if the bulls can rebound at the rising trend line, resistance will be found at $0.191 and $0.20. Above this, higher resistance lies at $0.208 (100-days EMA) and $0.218.

The RSI is approaching the 50 level, indecisive, and a break beneath this will likely push XRP beneath the trend line and into bearish territory.

On the other side, the first level of major resistance lies at 2710 SAT. Above this, and resistance lies at 2750 (100-days EMA) and 2800 SAT.

The RSI has dropped beneath 50, which indicates that the sellers are in charge of the market momentum. The Stochastic RSI is in oversold conditions, and a bullish crossover signal will be the first sign that the selling pressure is fading.
