On the daily chart, Ripple (XRP) price remains hovering near the crucial 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) at $0.76. In addition, the price continues to be under pressure at swing highs of $0.91 and is pulling back close to 31%.
After testing lows in February at $0.62, XRP is facing multiple rejections around the bearish trendline from the recent highs.
Now if the price drops below the said moving average, the first downward target will be placed at $0.70. A daily close below the said level will then explore the horizontal support line at $0.62.
Although the current price action seems in favor of the bears. However, a spike in buy orders could push the price to test the previous session’s high of $0.80, this will also coincide with a close above the bearish slopping line.
Next, the asset will aim for the critical 200 EMA at $0.85.
RSI: The Daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trading just slightly above the average line as it reads at 49.
MACD: The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is floating above the midline with a bullish bias.
