XRP’s technical picture

XRP/USD broke above the critical technical level created by a psychological $0.30 and solidified by a confluence of SMA100 and SMA50 (1-hour). The coin created a bullish gap, visible on 1-hour chart, which implies that the bullish sentiments are growing stronger.  

However, the short-term recovery is capped by $0.3080-$0.3100 area that encompasses SMA50 (4-hour) and SMA200 (1-hour). Once it is cleared, the upside momentum will gain traction with the next focus on $0.3200 with SMA100 (4-hour) located in approach, followed by  $61.8 Fibo retracement level located at $0.3230.

On the downside, a sustainable move under $0.3000 will attract more sellers to the market and push the coin back to $0.2900 and to the recent low of $0.2827.
