XRP/USD: Ripple Remains Above 200-Days EMA

Since our last analysis, XRP attempted to bounce back above $0.30 but failed to do so. Instead, it dropped into support at $0.273 after Bitcoiin tumbled beneath the $10,000 level again in yesterday’s trading session.

The cryptocurrency manages to stay above the 200-days EMA, which is a strong positive sign. However, the bearish pressure has now been prevalent throughout the past week.

XRP is trading in a neutral condition and would need to break $0.30 to begin turning bullish again. A drop beneath $0.26 would put XRP in danger of becoming bearish.

XRP Short Term Price Prediction

If the buyers manage to defend $0.273 and rebound higher, the first level of resistance lies at $0.289. This is followed by resistance at $0.30 and $0.31.

On the other side, if the sellers push below $0.273, the first level of support lies at the 200-days EMA at $0.264. This is followed with additional support at $0.26 (.618 Fib Retracement) and $0.25 (100-days EMA).

The RSI recently broke beneath the 50 level to indicate that the sellers are in control over the market momentum. The Stochastic RSI would need to produce a bullish crossover signal to indicate the bullish pressure is resurging.

XRP/BTC: XRP Battling To Stay Above 100-Days EMA

Against Bitcoin, XRP continued to fall beneath the 2900 SAT and dipped below the 100-days EMA as it attempts to remain above a rising trend line.

The momentum is certainly in favor of the bears. XRP is now in danger of turning bearish against Bitcoin, and a drop beneath 2700 SAT could be the catalyst to drive it lower.

On the other hand, if the bulls can bounce higher, resistance lies at 2900 SAT, 3000 SAT, and 3115 SAT.

Similarly, the RSI has dipped beneath the 50 level as the bears take control over the market momentum. It would need to break back above 50 for any form of market recovery.
