Biggest Movers: XRP Remains Close to 4-Month High, as LTC Rebounds on Wednesday

Bitcoin

XRP remained close to a four-month high on Wednesday, following a recent breakout of a key resistance level. The token was above $0.4000 for a second consecutive session, which happened for the first time since June. Litecoin also edged higher, after prices rebounded following recent losses.

XRP continued to trade close to a four-month high on Wednesday, as bullish sentiment remained strong within the token.

Following a low of $0.3774 earlier in today’s session, XRP/USD raced to a peak of $0.4215 on hump day.

The move comes after the token broke out of its key price ceiling of $0.4000 on Tuesday, hitting its highest point since June 1 in the process.

XRP/USD – Daily Chart

Although prices have since declined, and as of writing are trading at $0.4044, many still believe that further rallies could come.

Some believe that bulls are targeting the $0.4500 point, which appears to be the longer-term resistance point in XRP.

However, with the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) tracking at 62.45, prices may currently be overbought, leading to an influx of bears, opposed to bulls.

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin (LTC) was also in the green in today’s session, and prices rebounded following recent losses.

Following a drop to a two-month low of $50.01 to start the week, LTC/USD rose to an intraday peak of $54.17 on Wednesday.

The drop led to the token falling below a key support point of $52.00, however bulls reentered the market, sending prices higher.

LTC/USD – Daily Chart

Historically, once above the aforementioned floor, bulls typically take prices towards a ceiling of $60.00.

In order for this to happen on this occasion, we will need to see LTC climb above another ceiling, this time within the RSI.

As of writing, the index is tracking at 43.18, however it is fast approaching a resistance of 44.20, which would need to be overcome if litecoin were to move higher.
