XRP to USD Price Chart
Yesterday, after trading stably between $0.29 and $0.30 without any sharp move, Ripple took a steep escalation to $0.3137 and then corrected down to $0.03079 before closing the day. Today, the XRP coin has again crossed the price barriers above $0.30 and went as high as $0.3137, forming a double top pattern. However, the coin couldn’t fight the resistance above it and has returned to $0.3016 at 04:45:07 UTC.
ETH to USD Price Chart
To a certain extent, Ethereum has resonated with Ripple’s price trend as after today’s pullback, ETH has lost a price position from above $190. After yesterday’s surge above $193, Ethereum price gradually tumbled to $188, where it found a support level. The foremost altcoin started a strong uptrend before closing at $191.59. Today, ETH has again hit the price mark above $192.25 with a spike followed by a rapid pullback to $188. Right now, the coin is uplifting from there and is trading at $189.30 at 04:31:29 UTC.
ETH’s technicals are giving mixed signals at this point in time, considering the recent price correction. The long term SMA line has just crossed above the short term SMA line while the MACD chart is heading for a bearish cross-over. RSI indicator is just below 50, noting a stable momentum. Ethereum is likely to meet resistance near $ 0.3045, $ 0.3078, and $0.3111 and support levels at $0.2979, $0.2946, and $0.2913.
Regarding Ripple, the MACD chart is yet to see the bearish cross-over, and RSI is, again, below 50, noting a stable sentiment. XRP coin may face resistance at $193.87, $196.15, and $198.75, and support levels at $188.99, $186.39, and $184.11.
