XRP/USD: Has the sideways trend shifted to a bearish one?
Yesterday morning, the price of XRP fell below the two-hour EMA55 level and tested the support of $0.20 late in the evening. This psychological level kept the pair from further decline and in the morning the pair consolidated in a rather narrow lateral range.
Today, growth may resume in the resistance area of $0.213. A break through this level would enable the price to gain a foothold at around $0.220.
On the 4H chart, bearish sentiments are getting more powerful, although the trend has not yet changed. Due to high liquidity, there is buyer interest in the current zone. As neither bulls nor bears control the situation at the moment, the sideways movement is likely to continue over the next few days in the range of $0.20 - $0.2050.
On the daily chart, XRP has formed a large Triangle pattern. This suggests that a downtrend will likely start soon. Also, the ongoing rise is not accompanied by increasing trading volume. If bears take the pattern down, the bearish trend will resume. In this case, the first stop will be a retest of support at $0.18.
XRP is trading at $0.2016 at press time.
