Supply levels: $0.32, $0.33, $0.35
Demand levels: $0.31, $0.30, $0.29
XRP/USD remains bearish on the medium-term outlook. The crypto could not find its low at $0.30 demand level as predicted last week because the Bears’ momentum was weak and could not break down the $0.31. On April 15, XRP price reached $0.31 and the Bulls rejected further decrease in price and the coin consolidated towards $0.32. Formation of the descending triangle chart pattern confirmed.
The coin penetrated the 21 period EMA yesterday but unable to break up the 50 periods EMA. XRP price is below 21 periods EMA and 50 period EMAs. The 4-hour inverted hammer candle formed at the opening of the market today is an indication of a bearish move.
The Relative Strength Index period 14 is at 50 levels and the signal line pointing down to indicate sell signal. The Bears need to double their momentum in order to break down the demand level of $0.31 and reach the target at $0.30 price level. In case the Bulls defend the demand level of $0.31, sideways movement may continue for a while.
