XRP/USD: Bear pressure continues without significant bull resistance
On Saturday, under strong bearish pressure in the market, the XRP price tested support at $0.17 and set a monthly minimum at $0.169. On Sunday, buyers tried to restore the pair to the average price range, but the growth was not supported by a large volume and the price was not able to test the two-hour EMA55, which runs around $0.180.
If buyers manage to increase volumes and continue to grow, then the pair might overcome the resistance of the moving average EMA55 and gain a foothold above the level of average prices. However, today the pair may return to the zone of the monthly minimum and soon roll back into the descending channel.
On the 4H chart, the decline of XRP continues against medium trading volume. However, there is no liquidity at current levels, which could help lead to further decline.
The lines of the Bollinger Bands indicator are also moving down, signaling ongoing bear pressure. All in all, there is a high probability of a retest of $0.1730 soon.
On the daily time frame, the situation might improve, to a certain extent. XRP has found the local bottom as the RSI indicator is located on the verge of the oversold area. Respectively, traders can expect a rollback to the closest retest zone at $0.1811 soon. The high liquidity level in this zone will serve as a magnet for XRP.
XRP is trading at $0.1756 at press time.
