Fibo Quantum

Ripple’s XRP has largely outperformed Ether during these market downturns resulting in it becoming largest altcoin by market cap. After testing support at $0.4 on multiple occasion, XRP broke below it over the weekend and formed a low of around $0.31 yesterday.

Price has since recovered to $0.35, but momentum is still largely on the side of the sellers. Both the RSI and MACD are decreasing indicative of the increasing seller momentum.

Yesterday’s daily candle formed a Doji in XRP. A Doji is where the open is around the same point as the close and can have long wicks. It typically shows some indecision in the markets. Today’s candle is recording bearish movement as price decreased from opening around $0.37 to trading near $0.35 currently. There are mixed performances across the rest of the cryptocurrency market.
