The XRP daily chart is already hinting at an overbought scenario. However, the weekly chart below points to a bullish few weeks for XRP at least till the beginning of May this year as shall be explained.
To begin with, XRP has confidently broken the earlier identified resistances at $0.65 and $0.68. These price areas are now acting as support zones moving forward.
Secondly, the weekly trade volume is in the green with the MACD yet to show signs of exhaustion on a macro level. Thirdly, the weekly MFI and RSI are yet to also show signs of an overbought scenario at values of 64 and 75 respectively.
