The price of Ripple (XRP) has risen to a high of $0.40, still within the bullish trend zone.
The resistance of $0.40 was tested twice by the XRP price. The price of Ripple declined as it continued to consolidate below the barrier. In the previous price action in November and December, XRP dropped below the moving average lines after failing to break the barrier level. Moreover, the market is overbought for XRP where it is trading now. On the plus side, additional gains are unlikely as the price action indicates doji candlesticks. The cryptocurrency asset will lose value on the downside as it is rejected at the recent high. The price of the altcoin will oscillate between $0.31 and $0.40.
The relative strength index of XRP is 62 for the period 14. As the altcoin fluctuates below the barrier, the price of XRP is stable. As long as the price bars are above the moving average lines, Ripple will rise. A bearish momentum is seen for the altcoin below the daily stochastic level of 30. The horizontal slope of the moving average lines indicates a movement within the trading range.
Key resistance levels - $0.80 and $1.00
Key support levels - $0.40 and $0.20
The price of Ripple (XRP) has retested the barrier with a bearish double top pattern. This means that the altcoin will continue to lose value. On January 16, the downtrend was reversed to the upside and the candlestick tested the 50% Fibonacci retracement line. After the correction, XRP will fall to the Fibonacci extension level of $2.0 and $0.34, respectively.
