Xrp rebounded from recent drops in price on Friday, as the token surged by nearly 10% in today’s session. Cosmos was another notable gainer, as it snapped a four-day losing streak. Overall, cryptocurrency markets were mostly higher, with the global market cap up nearly 5% as of writing.
XRP was one of today’s big gainers, as prices of the token rose by nearly 10% earlier in today’s session.
Following a low of $0.4380 on Thursday, XRP/USD raced to an intraday peak of $0.5117 during the day.
Yesterday’s drop saw the token slip to a ten-day low, which was marginally below a floor of $0.4460.
As of writing, XRP is now trading at its highest point since Monday, when prices were above a key resistance point of $0.5280.
Looking at the chart, today’s surge comes as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) rose beyond its own ceiling at 57.00.
Currently, the index is tracking at 58.07, with bulls seemingly targeting a higher resistance of 60.00.
Cosmos (ATOM) was another notable gainer on Friday, as the token rebounded from a four-day losing streak.
The world’s twenty-second largest cryptocurrency climbed to a high of $12.24 earlier in the day.
Friday’s peak saw ATOM/USD almost 12% higher than the low from the previous day of $10.80.
As a result of Thursday’s drop, ATOM fell below its floor at the $11.90 point, however bulls reentered the market at this point, as this typically has happened at this mark.
The 10-day (red) moving average is now nearing its 25-day (blue) counterpart, which could trigger a potential upwards crossover.
As of writing, the RSI is moving closer to a resistance of 43.00, which could be the main hurdle for potential bulls looking to enter the market.
