XRP/USD – Bulls Battle To Stay Above .382 Fib & 20-days MA
Key Support Levels: $1.29, $1.25, $1.12.
Key Resistance Levels: $1.40, $1.50, $1.77.
XRP might be down 28% this week, but it seems the bulls have found solid support at $1.29, provided by a .382 Fib. XRP has closed each daily candle above this support for the past four days, and it is now further bolstered by the 20-days MA.
On Sunday, bitcoin suffered a significant price drop which caused the entire market to head lower. During that time, XRP dropped as low as $1.12, where it found support at a .5 Fib and the 20-days MA. It rebounded from there to close Sunday’s daily candle above $1.40 and has since established the support at $1.29.
XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the sellers break the support at $1.29, the first support beneath lies at $1.25 (Feb 2018 highs). This is followed by $1.12 (.5 Fib), $1.00, and $0.95 (.618 Fib).
On the other side, the first resistance lies at $1.40. This is followed by $1.50, $1.77 (1.272 Fib Extension), and $1.98 (2021 highs).
The daily RSI is marginally beneath the midline, indicating indecision within the market. If it continues to dip further, the increased bullish momentum is likely to drive XRP beneath the 20-days MA. Luckily, the Stochastic RSI is extremely oversold and is primed for a bullish crossover signal that might help the bull’s case.
