The MACD indicator suggested that the MACD line and the signal line were at a junction of crossover, but the bearish trend appeared to take precedence. On the other hand, the Relative Strength Index [RSI] pointed towards the oversold zone, noting the presence of the bearish trend.

Conclusion 

The third-largest coin, XRP, broke out of the descending triangle pattern and suffered a drop in its price. However, the price of the coin surged following a surge in the price of Bitcoin, which placed the price of the coin at $0.2207.
