Ripple indicator analysis
Ripple’s upside is doubtful as the altcoin is trading at the 68 level of the Relative Strength Index for period 14. The cryptocurrency is still trading in the overbought region of the market. This will attract sellers who will show up in the overbought region. The price of the cryptocurrency is well above the 21-day line SMA and the 50-day line SMA, which indicates further upward movement.
