After the devastating displacement from the second position, Ripple’s XRP continues to trend in a descending pattern, and it is still trending towards the bottom. A bounce back away from this regions could initiated with a rally for a return to the top or atleast a move to the mid-channel area of interest.
The RSI indicates an oversold conditions and it seems like seller are tired. A return towards the north could mean a move with a bullish pressure that would send XRP back to its previous high resistance levels.
Stochastic has got quite some room to head lower before touching the oversold level, and this signals that sellers might have got some reserve energy, although, a break further downward could spur worse bottoming.
Looking at the 5 days market chat, the longer-term 200 SMA is still above the 100 SMA, depicting that a least resistant path is still to the downside. However, even though the downtrend is likely to gain momentum than the upward trend, the trend line is facing up.
Furthermore, the gap between the moving averages has begun increasing width, thus, a stronger selling momentum might be around the corner. The 100 and 200 Simple Moving Averages may well hold as dynamic inflection points, before the crypto asset, XRP, ignites a bullish race bounce back towards 3250.
