XRP price steadies before the next action
XRP price tested the critical support near $0.75 after tagging the swing highs of $0.91. This also coincides with the ‘double top’ pattern, which resulted in the current price retracement. Furthermore, the slippage below the 200-day and 50-day EMAs (Exponential Moving Average) at $0.83 and $0.79 respectively makes bears hopeful.
The XRP buyers test the ascending trend line multiple times, which is extending from the lows of $0.54. Earlier, the price witnessed an ascent of nearly 50% from the lows of $0.61. This time too, the bulls would be ready for another run-up with the same figure in mind.
However, moving higher XRP price would face the first upside hurdle at $0.81 followed by the horizontal resistance level at $0.85.
A sustained buying pressure and an acceptance above $0.90 could push the price beyond the $1.0 mark in a highly optimistic scenario.
On the flip side, a break of the mentioned trend line would invalidate the bullish outlook on the asset. In this case, the sellers would keep their eyes on the horizontal support level at $0.70.
