XRP prices, as seen in the chart, show a rather sad state that most of the cryptocurrencies are in. The uptrend has long been lost in the history of bull runs, while the downtrend extends from $0.4394 to $0.3021. The prices are holding the support at $0.2940 steady, with resistance points seen hanging at $0.4040 and $0.4270.

The Bollinger Bands indicate a bearish outlook for XRP in the one-hour chart as the prices are hanging below the simple moving average. The bands are contracting, which indicates that the volatility has reduced.

The MACD indicator is also depicting a bearish presence for XRP markets as the lines have fallen below the zero-line in a bearish crossover.

The  Relative Strength Index is trying to stop free-falling but has been setting up lower lows instead.

The one-day chart also looks as bleak as the one-hour chart as there is no uptrend to be seen. The downtrend, however, extends from $0.9027 to $0.3119. The support for the one-day chart is seen at $0.2627, while resistance lines can be seen at $0.5821 to $0.6899.

The Parabolic SAR markers are seen materializing above the price candles, which indicates a bearish pressure to the price candles.

The Awesome Oscillator shows a transition of red lines into green, which means that the prices are increasing, but the lines are present below the zero-line in a big-picture point of view, which means that the signal is still bearish.

The Aroon indicator shows the Aroon downtrend is seen bouncing at 100-line, which means that the downtrend for XRP has overpowered the uptrend, and that is an overall bearish sign for XRP.


The one-hour chart for XRP  shows that the bears are in control of the market, which is, in turn, depicted by the indicators MACD, Stochastic, and the RSI. The one-day time frame also shows massive bearish signs as indicated by the SAR, Awesome Oscillator, and Aroon indicators.
