XRP/USD 4-hour chart

Ripple is not looking very bullish today as the price rejected the orange 200 4-hour simple moving average on Friday afternoon. The price is now heading toward the bottom of the channel formation and could even break the blue 55 4-hour exponential moving average. 

Away from this, the RSI indicator has also turned bearish with a downward tilt. The indicator was also close to forming a bearish divergence, this is where the indicator makes a lower high when the price makes a higher high but the price fell just shy of making a new high wave. 

The volume spiked when the price rejected the 200 SMA and now looks slightly lacklustre. If the price breaks 0.17 then the market will confirm the bearishness a new lower high lower low formation would be created. Overall the pair is still in an uptrend but the momentum looks like its dropping, a break of the channel and 0.17 level would confirm this.
