Ripple price analysis
XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Bearish
Key resistance levels: $0.4, $0.5, $0.6
Key support levels: $0.25, $0.20, $0.15
Viewing the market from a long-term perspective, XRP is nearing the angle of the descending triangle with choppy price action. A price break is expected at any moment, and XRP’s chance of rising is higher than the chance of falling. If the $0.25 strong support witnesses a breakdown, however, the coin would most likely sustain additional losses.
The daily RSI is shooting sideways, reflecting an indecisive market. A surge is most likely to hit the key resistance levels ($0.4, $0.5 and $0.6) in subsequent order. On the other hand, the closest major support level is at $0.25. But for now, a bearish signal is unclear and invisible.
At this stage, XRP traders are waiting patiently for a clear breakout before initiating an entry for the next big move. Looking at the daily Stochastic indicator, a bullish signal is slowly coming into play.
XRP/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish
Looking at the coin’s medium-term structural outlook, XRP is steadily maintaining an upward direction. The bullish momentum is seen by the price action following a higher high, higher low pattern. Currently, the coin is gradually reaching the lower channel, which is reflected on the 4-hour RSI.
Following the rally, XRP is respecting the ascending channel trend. As the market moves, a price break is likely to play out on both sides of the trend lines. A swing high would visit the nearest resistance level at $0.38, while the closest support for a low break is $0.28.
Whichever direction XRP takes, the 4-hour Stochastic suggests that selling pressure is currently in play – the market is running a retracement move. A bounce up is likely as soon as it reaches the oversold area.
XRP/USD Short-term Trend: Bullish
In fact, the short-term graph shows bullish momentum as trading is occurring between the $0.30 and $0.34 price levels. XRP is currently trading at $0.31.
For the bull side, the closest target is at the $0.34 resistance level and beyond. A possible incline is suggested by the hourly RSI, as it aims high. For the bear side, a decline is likely to bottom on the trend line where the $0.30 support lies. By then, the Stochastic would be facing down.
Considering the ascending trend line, a low break at the above support would position XRP in a bearish trend. As it stands now, the bull dominance is in play – increasing volume could help push the value of XRP up.
