XRP 4-hour Chart
XRP’s rally required stabilization at $0.93 and $1.00 before continuing on its next leg forward and although the same was expected moving forward, there seemed to be little to no resistance till $1.20-$1.25. This meant that XRP’s current rally might not have peaked just yet despite a near 30% surge from $0.93 to its press time level.
Once the resistance zone is snapped, some sideways movement can be expected before the next target at 20th May swing high of $1.30. In case of a decline, $1.095 support would likely contain any short-term risks.
XRP’s indicators lined up a favorable long-term outcome, but there was some short-term downside. For instance, RSI traded in the overbought region – a development that usually serves as a sell-signal. The index also formed bearish a head and shoulders pattern from where a decline is normally witnessed.
A bearish double top was also spotted on Awesome Oscillator, although another green candle would invalidate the bearish setup. On the other hand, DMI painted a more wider picture and suggested that the market was strengthening.
