The 4-hour Ripple price chart shows that XRP had pushed up to $0.77 on the 12th, where the 50-bar SMA acted as resistance. As a result, the price fell back, dropping to $0.76, before surging past the 50-bar SMA and moving to $0.79. After reaching this level, the price turned bearish and fell back, dropping to $0.76, where the 20-bar SMA was acting as support. The price pushed back to $0.78 before registering a sharp drop, falling below the 20 and 50-bar SMAs and settling at $0.75. The price pushed back above the 50-bar SMA from this level, rising to $0.77 on the 14th, then pushing past the 20-bar SMA on the 15th, rising to $0.78. XRP fell back, dropping to $0.77, and with the 20-bar SMA now acting as support, it could stay at this level until the 17th, when it slipped below the 20-bar SMA and moved to its current level of $0.76.

We can see that the 50-bar SMA is acting as support, but the MACD and Parabolic SAR are both currently bearish. However, if XRP is able to recover thanks to the support, we could see them flip to bullish.
