Our forecast

XRP/USD: Ripple continues to move lower into a strong demand area between $0.25-$0.30 cents as represented by a descending triangle pattern on the hourly chart. In descending triangle chart patterns, there is a string of lower highs which forms the upper line. The lower line is a support level in which the price cannot seem to break, in this case $0.24 cents. In the chart above, you can see that the price is gradually making lower highs which tells us that the sellers continue to gain ground against the buyers. Now most of the time, and we do say MOST, the price will eventually break the support line and continue to fall.

However, in some cases, the support line will be too strong, and the price will bounce off of it and make a strong move up.

The good news is that we don’t care where the price goes. We just know that it’s about to go somewhere. In this case, we would place buy entry orders above the upper line (the lower highs) around $0.34 cents and sell entries below the support line of $0.24 cents.
