XRP Price trades on the bearish edge
On the daily chart, the XRP price fell after failing to hold the psychological $0.85 level. XRP price traded inside the ‘Symmetrical’ triangle pattern since February 8. Finally, the triangle produced a bearish breakout ruining the possibility of $1.0.
Currently, the price hovers near the 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $0.80. Now, if the price slipped below the moving average then it would further intensify the selling of the token. The immediate downside target is placed at $0.75.
On the contrary, a shift in the bullish sentiment along with the breach of the 200-EMA would revive the hopes for the bulls. To continue with the upside gains once again, the XRP price must give a daily close above the critical $0.90 level.
Next, market participants would keep their eyes on the highs of December 23 at $1.07.
As of publication time, XRP/USD is trading at $0.81, down 3.83% for the day. The eight-largest cryptocurrency’s 24-hour trading volume is standing at $1,790,237,181 as per the CoinMarketCap.
