XRP/USD – XRP Continues To Set Multi-Year Highs
Key Support Levels: $1.63, $1.50, $1.41.
Key Resistance Levels: $1.77, $1.98, $2.10.
XRP surged by a whopping 87% over the past week as the coin currently sits at around $1.7. The cryptocurrency was trading at $1.00 just six days ago but has since shot up higher to break resistance at $1.25 (Feb 2018 highs) and reach highs not seen since January 2018.
On Tuesday, XRP surged from $1.40 to reach as high as $1.90. It continued higher yesterday to set a new 2021 high at $1.98 before it rolled over and dropped lower to the current level. The sentiment is now overwhelmingly bullish, but the market might be a little overextended at this moment in time.
XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $1.77 (1.272 Fib Extension). This is followed by $1.98 (2021 High), $2.00, and $2.10 (1.618 Fib Extension). Additional resistance lies at $2.20, $2.38 (1.272 Fib Extension – blue), $2.50, and $2.60 (1.414 Fib Extension – blue).
On the other side, the first support lies at $1.63 (.236 Fib). This is followed by $1.50, $1.41 (.382 Fib), $1.24 (.5 Fib & Feb 2018 Highs), and $1.06 (.618 Fib).
As expected, the RSI is extremely overbought and is starting to head lower. The momentum remains strong in the bulls’ favor. Still, a retracement might be necessary to provide breathing room for the bulls to recover from any potential exhaustion before pushing higher again.
