XRP Price Stalls At 4 Month Trend Line, Is $2 In The Making?

XRP Price Stalls At 4 Month Trend Line, Is $2 In The Making?
  • XRP price has risen over 140% in a month
  • XRP Price is attempting to clear 4 month downtrend
  • If XRP fails to hold $1.20, a retracement may be underway
  • TIP: As long as BTC can stay steady, XRP may catch up with another leg past $1.30. A pressing SEC lawsuit vs Ripple has not put much damper in price action the last month.

    XRP price has stalled over the past few days as price has been getting rejected at XRPs 4 month downtrend line. After a strong push to nearly $1.35 last week, bulls haven’t been able to pull off a breakout to the upside. Although, BTC has continued making new monthly highs along with many other alt coins the last few days.

    Ever since XRP hit its low at $0.50, it has formed an ascending channel. Price has been supported by both trend lines over the past month. At the time of writing, XRP price is attempting to breakout of its near 4 month downtrend line. Along with this trend lies a major resistance zone found at $1.28-$1.37.

    XRP Price must break & hold this mark to be completely in the clear for a large push past $1.40. If bulls manage this breakout, we can see XRP between $1.50-$1.70 fairly soon.

    XRP price has been holding above its minor support of $1.19 for almost 48 hours. If bears push price below this mark, we should expect a short term downtrend to take place. The next bounce area for XRP should be the bottom trend of its channel but if this fails to hold, we will see prices back between $1.00-$1.10. Slightly below the bottom trend that has held XRP up the last few weeks, lies the 15MA. This MA will surely provide a bounce if price manages to touch it. If at anytime XRP breaks below this mark, we can then say XRP is in a bear trend.

    While looking at the Stochastic RSI, we can see how it’s been falling after many weeks near the overbought territory. Based on the behavior of the MA’s, XRP may be in for another downfall. The strength seems very likely to fall under the oversold line which will cause a cascade of selling. The regular RSI has been holding a trend line ever since the start of August. A break below this line will likely land strength back to the 50 value which will cause sell offs to occur.
