Technical Indicators

The XRP price is analyzed at daily intervals alongside the RSI and the MACD in the first graph and the 10- and 20-day moving averages (MA) in the second one
On May 14, the XRP price reached a high of $47.8. This was combined with a high in the RSI, while the MACD followed suit shortly after. Since then, the price has created two higher highs. Conversely, the RSI and the MACD have both generated lower highs. Furthermore, the latter is in the process of creating a bearish cross. Bearish Divergence These readings indicate that it is possible that the price will begin a reversal. They preceded the decrease from $0.5 to the current price. Furthermore, the MAs are also starting to give a bearish outlook. Moving Averages Today’s decrease brought the XRP price below both MAs, which are currently providing resistance. However, a bearish cross has yet to occur. If the price closes below the 20-day MA and, especially, below $0.4, it would likely cause the price to reach the support level at $0.36.

Short-Term

A closer look shows that the XRP price has been following an ascending resistance line since May 14. Furthermore, it is possible that it is following a steep ascending support line since reaching a low on June 10. Support Area The recent decrease brought the price below this support line. However, it immediately sprung back up and has seemingly found support above it. Continued increases at the rate predicted by the line would validate the support line, which when combined with the ascending resistance line creates an ascending wedge, which is a bearish pattern. If, however, the line is invalidated, the price is likely to find support near $0.36 — similar to what it did between May 17 and 23.

Summary

The XRP price briefly increased above $0.50 before a reversal ensued. Recently, it has begun to show signs of weakness. XRP/USD is possibly trading inside an ascending wedge, during a period in which it has developed significant bearish divergence. If the price continues to decrease, it is likely to find support near $0.36. What do you think about the price of XRP? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
