XRP looks for bearish reversal
Source: Trading view
On the daily chart, Ripple (XRP) has been trading lower since the price made swing highs $0.91 as it moves inside the ‘rising wedge’ formation. It is a bearish reversal pattern as the price continues to trade in ‘lower high lower low formation’. As the price tested the lows of $0.67 and $0.622 and is one of the ways to revisit $0.58.
Furthermore, the price remains pressured below 200-EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $0.85 since December 24. If the price sliced below the 50-day EMA of $0.76 then it could fall toward the lower trend line of $0.58.
On the flip side, if the price is able to break above the psychological $0.87 level then it could move toward the critical $1.0 level.
