Key levels to watch
The XRP/USD 4-hour chart has turned bullish as XRP has been performing well over the last 24 hours. The technical indicators show that XRP is the best performer amongst the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap.
The MACD line crossed into the positive zone a few hours ago, indicating that the bulls have taken control of the XRP market following the Palau partnership with Ripple Labs.
The 14-day RSI of 73 also shows that XRP could enter the overbought region if the rally continues.
