XRP/USD  Daily chart:


Our forecast:

XRP/USD: At the time of writing Ripple is nursing losses of about 3.5% after a failed topside breakout in the previous session. Upside momentum failed to materialise into anything significant as bears continued to sell into strength. XRP has been confined to a tight range of $0.05 cents over the past week with a large breakout likely to be seen soon, whilst the direction remains unclear the price remains vulnerable to the downside with all indicators flashing red. XRP could come under heavy selling pressure today as Bitcoin heads towards the psychologically important $3,000 level, with the next major levels to watch $0.2950 and then $0.20-$0.25 cents. Ripple remains a sell on strength.

  • XRP/USD bears are testing the recent lows at $0.32 cents

  • Breach of $0.32 will likely see a test of $0.20-$0.25 cent area

  • Should Ripple market cap be $4 billion higher than Ethereum? Or is XRP/USD mispriced?

XRP/USD  Daily chart

Our forecast:

XRP/USD: Daily price has broken lower from the recent support zone around $0.35-$0.37 cents formed after the explosive rally towards $0.80 cents in mid September. XRP/USD price action via the 60-minute chart view can be seen moving within a bearish descending channel pattern and now challenging the $0.32 cent breakdown level. In our view should this support level be broken there should be a quick move lower towards the $0.20-$0.25 cent level as bulls capitulate. Only a break back above $0.37-$0.38 cent resistance will negate the immediate risk to the downside.
