Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC) – No Bounce Back in Sight

The cryptocurrency downtrend remains in place with little or no recovery seen after the latest double-digit sell-off. Tokens that would normally see either short-covering or renewed bullish interest at lower levels are refusing to move significantly higher, leaving the market at risk of further sell-offs. Ripple and Litecoin, the third-and sixth-largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization continue to trade with a negative bias with both under all three moving averages – 20-, 50- and 200-day - and recent support levels. Client positioning shows retail remain heavily long of both tokens despite their recent falls.

Ripple currently changes hands at $0.59, just above the recent low at $0.545. The chart shows a gap on the June 10 candle from $0.613 that needs to be filled before any upside momentum can start. The 20-day ma cuts across at the same level, the 50-day is currently at $0.65 and the 200-day at $0.66. Above here, $0.75 should prove stubborn resistance. On the downside the early April lows at $0.45 come into play.

Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC) Price Charts: Dead Cat Bounce?

Litecoin is in a similar situation trading below all three moving averages and the recent low print at $109.8 while the recent daily lows around $102 have just held. Further weakness should see the $100 psychological barrier at $100 under pressure which could lead to further double-digit losses. Resistance at $109.8 followed by $111.5 and $115.1.
