XRP needs to flip this lower timeframe zone of resistance to support
Highlighted in red was a zone of resistance at $0.39 that has been important in the past two months. It acted as support in mid-February, but over the past week, it has served as resistance. The RSI on the 4-hour chart showed the RSI bounced from the neutral 50 level. It indicated the momentum remained on the side of the bulls.
The CMF was also above +0.05 and showed significant capital flow into the market and backed up the argument of buying pressure strengthening recently.
The mid-range level at $0.374 acted as support during the latest bounce. An H4 trading session close beneath this level would flip the market structure to bearish.
At the time of writing, the signs remained bullish. Lower timeframe traders can wait for a flip of the highlighted resistance region to support before looking to buy.
