XRP Short Term Price Prediction

Once the bulls manage to break $0.337, the next level of resistance lies at $0.35. Above this, resistance is expected at $0.361, $0.379, and $0.39.

On the other side, if the sellers push XRP lower, support can be found at $0.32, $0.317, and $0.31.

The RSI remains firmly within the bull’s favor as it remains in overbought conditions. Additionally, the Stochastic RSI produced a bullish crossover signal to signal that the buyers remain in control of the market momentum.

XRP/BTC – XRP Climbs Higher From 200-days EMA.

Against Bitcoin, XRP continued to climb further above the 200-days EMA, to create a high at 3250 SAT. However, it has since dropped as it continues to battle resistance at 3270, provided by a 1.414 Fib Extension.

The break above 3000 SAT and subsequent break above the 200-days EMA leaves XRP in a bullish trading condition. It would need to drop back beneath the 2900 SAT for this bullish run to be invalidated.
