XRP has found strong support close to the $0.25 mark. Some hardcore fans of the Ripple network attribute the slow-motion of XRP in the market to skepticism exhibited by regulators. Ripple, the Fintech company in-charge of XRP, has been dumping huge quantities of coins in the market, thereby prohibiting further growth.
According to the candlestick chart for the XRP/USD pair on tradingview, bearish force is yet to subside. The daily RSI [for 10 periods] stands at 26.18, which shows that XRP has entered the oversold zone since 14th August. The MACD line remains below the signal line, ensuring that the histogram formed is red. After 30th July, the Ichimoku Cloud had changed its shade from green to red.
All of these indicators point to the prevalence of sellers in the market. If XRP does manage to climb, it will face stiff resistance near the $0.337 level. Although further losses may occur sometime in the foreseeable future.
