The indicator laid down dotted lines below the candlesticks which operated as an obstruction against any inherent downfall. The MACD indicator repeated the bullish sentiment as the MACD line remained above the signal line. These positive indicators could be a great bridge between the altcoin and $2.

When the XRP community was rejoicing the asset’s resurgence amidst the bear market, the altcoin’s short-term price chart gave rise to uncertainty. The Awesome Oscillator indicator with a green closing bar announced the presence of bulls. However, the Chaikin Money Flow indicator was noted below zero, further affirming bearish momentum. 

No major buying activity was witnessed in the XRP market, the Money Flow Index indicator verified.


With the bulls setting camp in the IOTA market, the coin is most likely to get a headstart for its journey to $2. The XRP market had both the bears and the bulls fighting for a spot. If the bulls emerge as winners, XRP could find its back to $0.5, but if the bears take over, the asset could plummet down to $0.3.
