XRP is making seemingly correct technical maneuvers on the charts, yet it continues to face a lack of enthusiasm from cryptocurrency bulls. Despite some positive movements, XRP has remained largely unpopular among bullish investors, particularly throughout 2024, primarily due to its inability to sustain significant momentum and attract high liquidity and volatility.

Currently, XRP is trading near the $0.53 mark, which is a critical threshold, as it hovers just below a newly formed resistance level at $0.558. This level has proven to be a significant barrier, with XRP struggling to push past despite several attempts.

The support level for XRP is now set around $0.520, which has provided a degree of stability for the asset. However, if this level fails to hold, there is a potential risk of a drop toward the lower support at $0.50, which could further dampen the market sentiment around XRP.

XRP's new local support at $0.520 is crucial for maintaining its current position. Should it break, the psychological barrier of $0.50 will become the next focal point for traders. On the flip side, if XRP manages to break the resistance at $0.558, it could indicate a shift in market perception, possibly allowing it to test the next resistance near $0.58.

Shiba Inu finds momentum

Shiba Inu has recently broken through the 100-day EMA, gaining substantial bullish momentum. This movement has been characterized by SHIB's price piercing through a weak local trendline resistance.

The 100 EMA, a key indicator watched by technical analysts, serves as a barometer for market sentiment over an intermediate period. SHIB's breach of this level has sparked conversations about the sustainability of this upward trajectory. The break above the 100 EMA, situated around the $0.0000095 price level, has been an encouraging sign for those holding the token.

However, the journey upward may not be without its challenges. One of the most prominent issues facing SHIB is the relatively low trading volume accompanying the recent price rise. Volume is a critical factor that often reinforces the strength of a trend; without it, even the most promising rallies can quickly lose steam and reverse. The concern for SHIB is that the current surge might not find enough market participation to sustain a continued move upward.

The next resistance lies near the $0.0000105 level. This price point is crucial as surpassing it could confirm the bullish case for SHIB, potentially leading to a further climb toward the $0.0000110 mark. On the other hand, failure to hold the current gains could see SHIB retract to test the support near $0.0000088, a level where buyers might step in to defend the price.

Cardano's unexpected rise 

Cardano has recently seen a significant price movement that has caught the attention of the cryptocurrency community. In a surprising turn of events, ADA experienced a massive breakout, pushing past the 26-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA), a technical indicator used to identify the medium-term direction of an asset's price.

This breakout is particularly noteworthy because the 26 EMA serves as a barometer for market sentiment, signaling the potential for a change in trend. The push beyond this level indicates growing investor confidence in ADA's short-term prospects. As a result, the focus now shifts to the 50 EMA, a level that represents a more robust and longer-term market trend. Should ADA's price action maintain its current trajectory, a test of the 50 EMA, which is situated around the $0.55 mark, seems imminent.

However, despite this bullish signal, there are underlying concerns regarding the market volume accompanying ADA's breakout. A descending market volume is observable, which suggests that while prices are moving up, there is not a corresponding increase in trading activity. This divergence often implies that a breakout might not have the necessary market support to sustain its momentum.
