Ripple (XRP) Price Analysis: XRP Sees Small Price Increase But Is It In Danger Of Dropping?

  • XRP saw a 1% price increase over the past 24 hours of trading as it continues to trade above $0.17.
  • XRP continues to find resistance at $0.18 and must break above here if we are to head higher.

Whilst other cryptocurrencies fall, XRP witnessed a small 1% price increase over the past 24 hours of trading as it hovers at the $0.173 level. It is still struggling to break the resistance at $0.18 and does look like it might roll over and drop over the next few days. 

This price drop is especially expected when we consider the fact that the RSI has failed to break above the 50 level and looks like it is turning away from here to show that the sellers are still not ready to give up control of the market momentum.

Market Overview

Taking a look at the daily chart above, we can see that XRP has been trading in a tight range between $0.18 and $0.17 over the past 4-days of trading. It has struggled to break above the resistance at $0.18 which has stopped any bullish momentum from forming.

Short term prediction: NEUTRAL

XRP is considered as neutral right now, however, if the RSI does roll over and XRP breaks beneath $0.16 we will be on the way to turning bearish again.

Toward the downside, the first level of support is expected at $0.1667 which had previously provided strong resistance for the market over the past 2-weeks. Beneath this, support lies at $0.16, $0.15, $0.14, and $0.127.

On the other hand, if the bulls can break the resistance at $0.18, higher resistance lies at $0.120 (bearish .382 Fib Retracement), $0.22, and $0.229 (bearish .5 Fib Retracement).
