Ripple Price Analysis: XRP Loses 9% in a Week But a Big Move Could be Ahead
XRP/USD – XRP Falls Beneath 20-day MA and Forms Triangle.
Key Support Levels: $1.10, $1.05, $0.92.Key Resistance Levels: $1.25, $1.28, $1.36.
XRP failed to break $1.27 (bearish .618 Fib) last week on the third attempt to overcome the level. As a result, the coin started to fall throughout the week until support was found on Thursday at around $1.05, provided by the lower angle of the triangle.
It rebounded from there over the weekend but could not break the upper angle of the triangle at around $1.20. As a result, XRP fell beneath the 20-day MA today as it heads lower. The apex of the triangle is quickly approaching, and a breakout in any direction can still be expected.
XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, the first support lies at $1.10 (.382 Fib & lower angle of the triangle). This is followed by $1.05, $1.00, and $0.928 (.618 Fib).
On the other side, the first resistance lies at $1.15 (20-day MA & upper angle of triangle). This is followed by $1.27 (bearish .618 Fib), $1.36 (1.618 Fib Extension), $1.49 (bearish .786 Fib), and $1.61 (bearish .886 Fib).
The RSI is heading lower but still remains above the midline, indicating weak bullish momentum within the market. A break beneath the midline could send XRP beneath the triangle and back toward $1.
