XRP also suffered a disastrous week against bitcoin in which it dropped from above the October 2019 highs of 3780 SAT to reach as low as 2000 SAT yesterday. The price drop caused XRP to break beneath the 50-day MA for the first time since March 2021 and also caused it to fall beneath a rising trend line.
Luckily, the bulls managed to rebound to close yesterday’s daily candle at 2260 SAT, where lies the .786 Fib support. Today, XRP has bounced slightly higher as it now trades at 2321 SAT.
