Bearish movements took place across the cryptocurrency market yesterday as Bitcoin returned to sub-$6k levels. Ripple’s XRP is no different and is now on its third consecutive day of declines. XRP has managed to hold its value during this decline better than Ethereum and has now overtaken Ethereum as the largest altcoin in terms of market cap.

XRP Overtakes Ethereum

Yesterday’s decline brought the price of XRP from $0.5 to an intraday low close to $0.4. Price had since retraced to close around $0.46 but is continuing its drop today. The price is currently trading around $0.44, and momentum is firmly on the side of sellers. Both the RSI and the MACD are decreasing showing seller momentum.

Price is more stable today for XRP, but the overall outlook remains bearish. An increase from here would likely meet numerous resistance points such as the hourly 50 EMA and $0.49 level in the event of a significant rise. With the overall market moving in a downward direction, there is likely a greater chance of XRP returning to $0.4. XRP traded all the way down to $0.29 around one month ago, so there is the possibility of XRP returning to sub-$0.4 levels
