XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction
From above, the first level of strong resistance lies at $0.182. Above this, resistance lies at $0.191 (bearish .618 Fib Retracement), $0.20, and $0.218 (100-days EMA).
On the other side, the first level of support lies at the previous rising trend line. This is followed by support at $0.156, $0.147, and $0.136.
The RSI climbed above 50 but since dropped back to the mid-level. This shows that the bulls are still struggling to maintain any form of momentum within the market. A drop beneath 50 would show that the sellers have regained control and will likely send XRP beneath the trend line.
Additionally, the Stochastic RSI produced a bearish crossover signal that could potentially aid the selling scenario.
