Bitcoin briefly dipped to $27K on Wednesday, about half of its initial jump from $26K to $28K and back below its 200-day and 200-week averages, despite the increased traction of risk in traditional markets.

XRP has performed worse than the cryptocurrency market over the past few days, erasing almost all gains of its latest leap. On a weekly timeframe, long-term support appears to have been taken over by the 200-week average (now $0.516). A fortnight ago, the sell-off stopped at the 50-week average ($0.457). Both curves are well above the multi-year uptrend line, which now runs through $0.39. This dynamic could attract more speculators soon, with an upside potential of $0.60 or even $0.80.
