Ripple’s XRP token is currently trading within a tight range with it using the daily 200 exponential moving average as support while the 50EMA is forming a point of resistance.
At the time of writing the world’s fourth largest cryptocurrency by market cap is trading at $0.25092 after suffering a 3.91% sell-off from the $0.2598 level of resistance.
This means that in spite of the recent downtrend from its local high of $0.329, XRP remains in a neutral position on lower time frames as it decides its next course of action.
Breaking above the daily 50EMA and the $0.2598 level would set up a positive move to the upside, with the next level after that coming in at $0.2835.
However, if XRP closes a daily or weekly candle below $0.2279, it would confirm a break down in price, which would see it enter a new bearish phase from a macro perspective.
If the bearish scenario comes into fruition, XRP would most likely slide to below $0.20 following a lack of confidence and lack of momentum from buyers.
It’s worth noting that XRP currently does follow the wider cryptocurrency market in terms of price action, which means that if Bitcoin suddenly makes a move back towards $12,000, XRP will likely begin to consolidate higher.
