XRP/USD: Technical picture

XRP/USD retreated from the intraday high of $0.2476, though it is still well above the psychological support created by $0.2400. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $0.2380, reinforced by 50-hour SMA and the lower line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band. The short-term trend remains bullish as long as the price stays above this level. If it is broken, the downside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $0.2300 and 100-hour SMA at $0.2280.

On the upside, the initial resistance is created by the intraday high. A sustainable move above this area is needed for the upside to gain traction with the next focus on $0.2500. In the long run, the critical barrier is created by 100-week SMA at $0.2950 followed by a psychological $0.3000.

The intraday RSI shows signs of a bullish reversal, which means the price may resume the recovery within the current range.
