XRP/USD – Bulls Fight To Reclaim $1
Key Support Levels: $0.9, $0.8282, $0.75.
Key Resistance Levels: $1.05, $1.12, $1.25.
XRP surged by a strong 14% today as the bulls battle to reclaim the $1 level. The coin fell beneath the level toward the end of last week and started to head lower over the weekend as it slipped beneath the 100-day MA at $0.95.
The cryptocurrency continued to fall until support was found at $0.8282 on Saturday. The market closed at this support and rebounded from there yesterday to climb back above $0.9. Today, the 13% surge allowed XRP to climb above the 100-day MA again as it looks to reclaim $1 next.
XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the bulls break $1, the first resistance lies at $1.05 (beraish .382 Fib). This is followed by $1.12 (20-day MA), $1.25 (Feb 2018 highs), and $1.33 (bearish .618 Fib & 50-day MA).
On the other side, the first support lies at $0.9. This is followed by $0.8282, $0.75 (.786 Fib), and $0.69 (200-day MA).
The RSI has returned to the midline to indicate indecision within the market. For XRP to reclaim $1.00 and remain above it, the RSI would need to break above 50 to indicate bullish momentum within the market.
