Ripple technical outlook

If Ripple manages to stay above $0.2940 (Fibonacci 23.6% retracement of the latest rally) at the end of the week, it could try to stretch higher toward $0.3185 (February 16 high) and $0.3460 (2020 high). On the downside, supports are located at $0.2940, $0.2820 (20-day SMA) and $0.2745 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement).

Meanwhile, the daily RSI is now slightly below 70 but the downslope is relatively soft, suggesting that XRP/USD hasn’t yet made a convincing correction after becoming technically overbought.
