With the market back to declining today, it is likely that XRP will drop and potentially stay below $0.3. The 2018 low for XRP is around $0.25, so a return to bearish movements may bring XRP price to this level. The momentum is on the side of sellers with both the MACD and RSI decreasing to the downside.

The market leader Bitcoin which represents over 55% of the entire cryptocurrency market cap has been recording similar movements. A recovery over the weekend brought the price briefly above $3600. Price has started declining since and this has likely resulted in a lower high being formed in both Bitcoin and XRP.

$3000 is the next key level to monitor for Bitcoin, and a drop to this level may bring the entire cryptocurrency market cap below $100 Billion. A drop below either of these may spark another sever sell-off across the market.
