Biggest Movers: XRP, SOL Move 5% Lower to Start the Week

Xrp plunged to a six-week low on Monday, as cryptocurrency markets moved further into the red. The global crypto market cap fell by over 3% to start the week, which comes days ahead of the upcoming U.S. inflation report. Solana also declined, hitting a multi-week low.

XRP

Xrp, formerly known as ripple, fell by as much as 5% on Monday, with the global market cap slipping by over 3% in the day.

XRP/USD dropped to an intraday low of $0.4333 to start the week, less than 24 hours after hitting a high of $0.4606.

As a result of this decline, XRP moved to its lowest point since March 25, breaking out of a floor at $0.4360 in the process.

Looking at the chart, the slippage came as the relative strength index (RSI), broke out of a floor at 39.00.

At the time of writing, the index is tracking at 36.04, with XRP at a level of $0.4365.

Overall, the token is down 5.11% as of writing.

Solana (SOL)

Solana (SOL) remained in the red, as the token extended its own recent declines to a third session.

Following a high of $22.74 on Sunday, SOL/USD fell to a low of $21.01 earlier in the day.

Monday’s drop in price has sent SOL to its long-term support point at $21.00, resulting in its lowest level since April 26.

The token has rebounded from earlier lows, as the RSI found a floor of its own at the 44.00 mark.

As of writing, price strength is tracking at 44.57, with a ceiling at 49.00 a potential target for bulls.

If momentum does rise, and more bulls reenter the market, that could lead to SOL climbing back above $22.00.
