Ripple Daily Chart 10/02/2020

XRP prices, at the time of going to press, are stable. However, against the greenback, it appears as if the market is overheated and a contrarian move may pan out. Evidently, XRP gains have been near perpendicular, adding over 9% in less than a week.

Meanwhile, the move was preceded by two bear bars that moved away from the upper BB, revealing slowing momentum. Entry opportunities, should today turn bearish, will be at around 25 cents.
