european binary trading

After numerous tests of the key $0.4 support level, Ripple’s XRP briefly dropped below it. A brief drop in the price of the largest altcoin by market cap brought the price down to a value of around $0.39 but quickly retraced back above the key support at $0.4.

Numerous tests of a level result in the progressive weakening of the level. While the first few times XRP approached $0.4 it quickly bounced, more recently it has been trading closer to the level and staying for longer. XRP continues to trade close to $0.4, and another drop below is likely.

Recent trading in XRP has been volatile with the price fluctuating between $0.4 and $0.5 on Wednesday. Momentum has been more on the side of sellers with both the MACD and RSI decreasing.

The hourly chart provides a closer look at XRP’s drop below the $0.4 support. Price quickly retraced back above to form a lower high of $0.415. It has since retested the $0.4 level but has yet failed to break back below. In the event of a rise from here, some resistance is likely to come in to play at the 50 EMA around $0.42.
