XRP/USD Daily Chart
XRP has been in clear trading sideways, as it progresses into a relatively low volume and uncertain swing trading weekend. Under the daily MA 200, the fourth largest cryptocurrency in the globe continues to grapple. While XRP continues to trade beneath MA 200, conversely, it’s almost unrealistic to be bullish, what’s even more probable is the extension of the macro bear market, which would see the support level of $0.1600 return to the picture.
Once XRP could also continue to find an injection of buyers’ interest, it may commence rallying to around $0.2357 before actually testing the yearly high at $0.3463. Ending a daily candle beyond $0.35 is ambitious, and may post the first considerably higher low of XRP in a long time, validating the anticipated bullish narrative.

As illustrated on the 4-hour chart, XRP/USD varies within an ascending trendline amongst gains and losses, with a split in any direction due on the cards. That being said, staring at the structure, the upside seems more persuasive, as a bunch of reasonable levels of support tends to defend the downside.
Whereas, a test of ascending trendline support may be attempted at $0.2000 should the sellers seize control. A violation of the latter may suggest a decline in support, with a $0.1900 price target on the bears’ radar. As of the time of posting the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the short-term frame has now shifted slightly around the midline (50.0), backing sideways trading.
