Ripple’s XRP token is currently grinding along the $0.26 level of resistance following a bullish cross of the 50 and 200 exponential moving averages on the four-hour chart.
XRP has failed to trade above $0.26 since the break down in price on September 3, facing subsequent rejections on September 15 and October 5.
The two previous touches of this level were met with a swift sell-off, while this time around XRP has absorbed sell pressure as it begins to show signs of strength.
A breakout above this level would indicate a continued move to the upside with $0.283 emerging as a potential target.
However, if XRP gets dealt another brutal rejection from $0.26, it will most likely slide back down to $0.237 as this lines up with the daily 200 EMA.
Considering the fact that XRP has been in a consistent downtrend since its all-time high in early 2018, its recovery since March has been remarkable with it forming clear higher lows.
While it almost certainly seems as though a reversal has commenced on a macro scale, XRP needs to break above $0.32 before it can look towards other key levels like $0.36 and $0.50.
