XRP’s technical picture

XRP/USD managed to return above $0.30 handle, mitigating the immediate bearish pressure. However, the coin needs to clear $0.3050 barrier to set the stage for an extended recovery. This resistance is created by a confluence of SMA50 and SMA100 (4-hour) and SMA200 1-hour. The next bull’s aim comes at psychological $0.3100.

On the downside, a clear move below $0.3000 will expose the recent low of $0.2964 and bring $0.2870 (March 28 low) into focus. It is followed by $0.2815 (the lowest level of December, 15, 2018), which is regarded as an ultimate support for the coin.
