Ripple’s XRP price technical picture

In spite of the support on the United States leading cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase Ripple’s XRP is still stuck in last week’s range between $0.2800 and $0.3500. Since the drop at the beginning of the year, XRP/USD has not been able to explore the levels above $0.35. In fact, a couple of bull rallies we have seen in February have failed to break past the critical level. On Sunday last week, XRP retested the resistance at $0.35 completing the double top pattern.

The reaction to the pattern sent XRP/USD back to the drawing board at $0.30. However, the support by Coinbase Pro culminated in gains that came close to $0.34 before the trend turned bearish again on Tuesday. At press time, XRP is trading at $0.3197 with the upside limited immediately by the 4-hour 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA).

On the downside, the first support is highlighted by the 100-day SMA currently at $0.3141. The second support is formed at $0.31 and the next support is observed at $0.31. If XRP slides below this level expect the buyers to enter at $0.28 or at $0.26 (although this will be an overstretch for XRP owing to the fact that technical indicators are still positive.
