Technical analysis: XRP eyes over 7% gains as it extends rally

Ripple has been in an uptrend since April 13. The altcoin has formed higher highs and higher lows, as seen in the XRP/USDT 1-day chart. In its uptrend, the altcoin has preserved 3% gains from the week and surged past $0.53 on Friday. 

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), a momentum indicator, shows there is underlying positive momentum in the XRP uptrend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) reads 52.93, supporting the recovery in XRP price. 

If Ripple continues its uptrend, it could extend gains by over 7%, climbing to $0.5703, the high observed on May 6 and April 22. This level has acted as resistance for the altcoin since April 13.

On the downside, the XRP price could sweep liquidity at the May 23 low of $0.5027. This is a key level for the altcoin as it is close to $0.50, a psychologically important support for Ripple. 

Bitcoin, altcoins, stablecoins FAQs

Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, a virtual currency designed to serve as money. This form of payment cannot be controlled by any one person, group, or entity, which eliminates the need for third-party participation during financial transactions.

Altcoins are any cryptocurrency apart from Bitcoin, but some also regard Ethereum as a non-altcoin because it is from these two cryptocurrencies that forking happens. If this is true, then Litecoin is the first altcoin, forked from the Bitcoin protocol and, therefore, an “improved” version of it.

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies designed to have a stable price, with their value backed by a reserve of the asset it represents. To achieve this, the value of any one stablecoin is pegged to a commodity or financial instrument, such as the US Dollar (USD), with its supply regulated by an algorithm or demand. The main goal of stablecoins is to provide an on/off-ramp for investors willing to trade and invest in cryptocurrencies. Stablecoins also allow investors to store value since cryptocurrencies, in general, are subject to volatility.

Bitcoin dominance is the ratio of Bitcoin's market capitalization to the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies combined. It provides a clear picture of Bitcoin’s interest among investors. A high BTC dominance typically happens before and during a bull run, in which investors resort to investing in relatively stable and high market capitalization cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. A drop in BTC dominance usually means that investors are moving their capital and/or profits to altcoins in a quest for higher returns, which usually triggers an explosion of altcoin rallies.
