Our Forecast:

XRP/USD: On the daily chart, price action has crept above a long running downward trendline with short term resistance seen toward $0.3250 which the bulls need to breach to generate some upside momentum. The daily MACD is showing that the market has very low volatility and momentum and when combined with the fact that average daily volume has been averaging close to 500 million, which is some 1 billion below XRP’s nearest peers in the top 5 market cap raises the question is the market losing interest in Ripple or is there a large overhang of bag holders from higher levels which is preventing this asset from moving higher? Either way time will tell, perhaps a move above $0.35 cents is need to encourage fresh buyers into XRP and generate some momentum.
