The longer time frame for XRP shows a dominant downtrend with no signs of a strong uptrend evolving. The downtrend extends from $0.9027 to $0.313. The support at $0.2587 is the only thing holding the prices from spiraling downwards. The resistance points at $0.5836, $0.6880 and $0.9027 will be tested soon considering how the prices are behaving.

The Aroon indicator shows a simultaneous increase of both the uptrend and the downtrend as the Aroon green and the red lines are both heading upwards.

The Chaikin Money Flow indicator is still below the zero-line indicating that the sellers are still pressuring the buyers i..e, the money is still flowing out of the market.

The Relative Strength Index shows the same scenario as the CMF as the RSI line is below the 50-line. This indicates that the sellers are dominant in the XRP market.


The one-hour chart shows bullish signs for the shorter time frame as confirmed by the MACD and AO indicator, contrary to the bearish indications of the the SAR indicator. The Aroon, CMF and the RSI all indicate a stagnant and sideways motion with a slightly bearish outlook for XRP in the longer term.
