Horizontal Channel

The price of XRP/USD is analyzed at one-hour intervals from Apr 2 to Apr 5 to help determine current trading patterns.
On Apr 3, the price reached a low of $0.375. Several market cycles have been completed and the price has reached the same level three times. Tracing these highs gives us a horizontal resistance line: XRP Resistance On Apr 2, the price reached an hourly low of $0.327. A gradual increase ensued, followed by a rapid decrease. The price reached the same level three times. Tracing these lows gives us a horizontal support line. The resistance and support lines combine to create a horizontal channel: XRP Horizontal Channel The price is very close to the resistance line of the channel. Will it break out? In order to answer that, we need to take a look at some technical indicators.

Technical Indicators

To better assess possible future price fluctuations, we incorporate the MACD and the RSI  into the analysis.
The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a trend indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages (long and short-term) and the price.
The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.
Combining MACD and RSI bullish/bearish divergence with support/resistance essentially predicts price fluctuations. XRP Bearish Divergence On Apr 2, the price reached a high of $0.363. It has reached or exceeded this level several times since. Similarly, the RSI made a high on Apr 2 while the MACD made on Apr 3. Both have continued to generate lower values since. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases. Using these indicators, it is likely that the price decreases towards the support line of the channel.

Where Might XRP’s Price Land?

Support areas are created when the price visits the same level several times. They can act as an area of reversal.
XRP Reversal The closest support area is found near $0.345. We believe it is likely that the price will reach this area. Based on this analysis, the price of XRP is likely to undergo a correction. Price is expected to drop toward the support line of the channel. Disclaimer: This article is not trading advice and should not be construed as such.
