CPA Australia stated that the bank of France was considering Ripple and XRP as potential platforms for digital euros, better than BTC and ETH. This caused XRP to spike to an intraday high of $0.48998. But the crypto asset fell back to a range bound of $0.48998 and $0.48998 due to uncertainty rounding the digital from the unsettled SEC law suit.

XRP 4-hour chart

The bulls broke the 9-EMA and 20-day SMA simultaneously with just one bullish candle showing the XRP army is back. XRP is crawling on the upper band of the Bollinger band as a sign of uptrend at press time. The RSI up ticked above the neutral territory and shows strong uptrend bias.

On the day ahead, the bulls will need to thrust XRP price above the resistance built on 22nd February. If succeed, traders can launch a buy position for probable target of $0.59487 for profit booking.

LTC 4-hour chart

With the 20-day SMA acting as a dynamic support and also with the bullish momentum, LTC could hit a major resistance of $208.08. This price level will be tough for the bulls to break. Because this level is the bridge between the uptrend and downtrend.

With broader market support and volume on the side of the bulls, LTC price could break above the $208.08 and resume the rally in the day ahead.
