Top cryptocurrencies to watch this week: XRP, DOGE, INJ

This week, our top cryptocurrencies — XRP (XRP), Dogecoin (DOGE) and Injective (INJ) — take center stage, on the heels of Bitcoin’s (BTC) slump and the global crypto market cap losing about $100 billion due to price upswings and dumps.

Bitcoin reached a two-year high of $49,000 on Jan. 11, when bitcoin ETFs began trading in the U.S. Since then. the asset plummeted and is now trading at $41,807.60, up by just .34% on Sunday, Jan. 21.

XRP battles $0.55

The latest market collapse impacted most mainstream assets, and XRP did not evade the onslaught.

Recall that XRP dropped to a low of $0.50 on Jan. 3 amid a mixed start to the year.

The asset eventually recovered from this slump, recovering the pivotal $0.55 price threshold.

However, this week saw the bears attempt to push XRP below the price level. The bearish trend from the previous week spilled into this week, leading to a bearish consolidation between a low of $0.5216 and a high of $0.5895.

XRP hit this high on Jan. 15, at the start of the week. Nonetheless, the bears battered it below the price threshold, and it has continued to record lower lows since then, slipping to the $0.55 zone. XRP defended the $0.55 support fervently, but eventually gave it up on Jan. 18.

As the bearish pressure heightened, the asset collapsed to the $0.5216 low on Jan. 19. XRP staged a comeback, gaining 1.67% the next day to reclaim the $0.55 territory. Currently trading for $0.5525, the token seeks to seal its position above this price point.

Failure to do this would bring the support at $0.5487 into play, XRP’s last defense against further declines. The asset must register a measured move to the Jan. 9 high of $0.5780, currently at Fib. 0.382. Closing above this resistance level could signal a looming price reversal.
