Key Support Levels: 1730 SAT, 1660 SAT, 1600 SAT.
Key Resistance Levels: 1800 SAT, 1900 SAT, 1960 SAT.

Against BTC, XRP hit a fresh three-month low this week after reaching 1600 SAT. The cryptocurrency has traded inside a descending price channel since the start of July. The recent drop to 1600 SAT allowed the market to find support at the lower boundary of the price channel.

Today, XRP rebounded from 1600 SAT to reach as high as 1890 SAT. Unfortunately, it is struggling to stay above the resistance at the upper angle of the price channel around 1800 SAT, which is further bolstered by the 20-day MA level.
