Ripple’s XRP token has reached a critical level of support in terms of price action and technicals, although its lack of volume remains a cause for concern.
It is currently trading at March 20’s high of $0.1755, with the daily relative strength index (RSI) ticking to the upside for the first time since the down trend began at the end of August.
Bouncing from this region with a swift move back into the $0.20 range would mark XRP’s first higher low since February, which could spur a continued rally to the upside.
However, it can’t be ignored that trade volume on all XRP trading pairs have dropped off significantly over the past eight weeks, with $1.07 billion being traded over the past 24 hours, down by 70% from in April when it hit $3.5 billion in the same period.
The apparent lack of interest in XRP is bizarre considering the amount of development that has been going on in 2020 for Ripple, with remittance corridors being expanded alongside global partnerships.
However, one of the main stumbling blocks for the XRP token is over-the-counter token sales from the Ripple Foundation, which CEO Brad Garlinghouse claims are “vital to the company’s survival”.
Flooding the market with a fresh supply of premined tokens during a time when natural interest and demand is low has obviously been to XRP’s detriment over the past year, with its price tumbling from almost $0.50 in June, 2019.
From a technical perspective XRP desperately needs to break above the daily 200 moving average in order to trigger a bullish breakout, with it currently residing at $0.2096.
