Possible breach of support at the 38.2% Fib level ($0.3907): can the bears maintain momentum?
XRP is likely to surpass current support levels at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level ($0.3907). Moreover, XRP could fall further to retest support at the 23.6% Fib level ($0.3839).
Two key technical analysis indicators point to the bearish outlook above. Notably, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator has crept sideways below the 50 neutral mark. This indicates that buying pressure has eased and selling pressure has steadily increased.
Additionally, on-balance volume (OBV) showed a downtick indicating a decrease in trading volume. Therefore, it could weaken the buying pressure enough to boost the bulls. In other words, sellers gain more leverage from lower trading volumes, which can push the price of XRP down.
However, if the candlestick closes above the Fib 50% level ($0.3962), this bearish trend could be reversed. In such a case, XRP could target a new resistance level at the 61.8% Fib level ($0.4017).
