XRP/USD: Can XRP grow against the sideways market?
Yesterday, buyers were unable to overcome the $0.260 resistance and sellers were trapped by an upward trend line.
On the chart, indicators are in the overbought zone and suggest an impending decline. Moreover, the support of $0.250 may not be able to withstand the bearish onslaught. Most likely, the price will drop to the POC line ($0.244).
On the 4H time frame, XRP is about to break the $0.2570 level. It is likely that the trading volume remains at a relatively high level.
In addition, the RSI indicator has formed a bullish divergence, having confirmed buyers' potential to keep pushing the rate of the altcoin higher. If bulls can fix above $0.26, the resistance at $0.2639 can be easily attained.
On the longer term, the situation is not so positive as XRP has not fixed above $0.26. The trading volume is going down against the rising price of the altcoin, which means that a correction is more likely than a drop on the long-term perspective. Thus, the cryptocurrency keeps trading in the falling channel. All in all, traders may expect to see XRP at the support level of $0.2390 soon.
XRP is trading at $0.2530 at press time.
