Technical analysis: XRP eyes nearly 7% gains

Ripple is in an uptrend that started on April 18. Since then the altcoin has formed higher highs and higher lows consistently. XRP is attempting to flip the $0.5310 resistance level to support. This level is important since it marks the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the decline from the April 9 peak of $0.6431 to the April 13 low of $0.4188. 

In its uptrend, XRP could extend gains by nearly 7% and tag $0.5703, the high on the May 6 and April 22 candlestick on the XRP/USDT 1-day chart. 

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator with its green histogram bars above the neutral line, supports gains in XRP. It implies there is an underlying positive momentum. 

The momentum indicator Relative Strength Index (RSI) reads 50.23, above the neutral level, suggesting bullish momentum in the altcoin.

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.
