Ripple’s controversial XRP token seems to have formed a gruelling lower high on its daily chart to indicate a potential move to the downside.
It has now failed to break above the $0.20 level of resistance on two occasions following the break down in price on March 12.
In the immediate future XRP needs to avoid breaking back below $0.1696 level of support to prevent the first signs of a bear market.
If it can manage to pick itself up and break out above $0.20 then it will be met with the bitterly stern daily 200 moving average, which is now providing a key hurdle for a number of the top cryptocurrencies.
Bullish XRP supporters will be hoping that the upcoming Bitcoin halving will have the desired effect on the wider cryptocurrency market, although several analysts predict that it could trigger a continuation of the macro downtrend.
However, the uptrends didn’t come into fruition until well after the halving, which means that the rest of the year may be a slog before the lack of supply begins to impact price action.
Despite 2020 causing havoc among capital markets XRP has remained relatively unperturbed, opening the year at the exact price it’s at today even though it has suffered dramatic swings in both directions.
While in the short term XRP looks like it may be in store for a correction, the macros continue to present bullish cases as the world becomes more optimistic about the long-term impact of coronavirus.
