Biggest Movers: XRP Nears 5-Month High to Start the Weekend
Xrp, the token formerly known as ripple, rose close to a five-month high on Saturday, despite the current red wave sweeping through markets. The token was trading marginally above a ceiling of $0.525, as bulls attempted to recapture recent highs. Cosmos was also higher, nearing a breakout of a key resistance point.
XRP surged towards a five-month high to start the weekend, despite crypto markets trading mostly lower on Saturday.
Following a low of $0.4855 in yesterday’s session, XRP/USD rose to a high of $0.5279 less than 24-hours after the previous bottom.
This surge saw the token marginally break out of a key resistance point of $0.525, climbing for a sixth straight day in the process.
Looking at the chart, since the day’s previous peak, gains have somewhat eased, and as of writing prices are trading at $0.5184.
The decline comes as earlier bulls opted to secure gains, and close their positions as opposed to holding on as XRP entered an area of uncertainty.
One of these points was the ceiling of 67.45 on the 14-day relative strength index (RSI), which is the highest point XRP has hit since September 26.
Cosmos (ATOM) was also in the green on Saturday, colliding with a major point of resistance in the process.
ATOM/USD climbed to an intraday high of $13.33 to start the weekend, a day after hovering at a low of $12.70.
This week, cosmos has mostly consolidated, trading between $12.00 and $13.15, however bulls have now moved to surge beyond this point today.
As can be seen from the chart, the RSI is now tracking at 48.49, which is marginally below a ceiling of 50.00.
Should this ceiling be broken, ATOM/USD, which is the world’s twenty-first largest crypto token, will likely climb above the $13.15 resistance point.
