XRP/USD Price Analysis
Just recently, the price of XRP soared to over 32 cents. At the time of writing, XRP has recoiled, and the asset is at break-even with the greenback.
It is nonetheless down in the last trading hour, but still, the uptrend is firm.
As from the chart, every dip should be a buying opportunity. For now, sell pressure is strong. Notably, there is a double bar bear reversal pattern visible in the daily chart. Behind the sharp downturn are high trading volumes.
On Feb 15, and according to data streams from Coinbase, the bar had 59 million in volumes versus the 13-day average of 37 million.
The confirmation of yesterday is therefore an affirmation of bears, meaning XRP could retrace to 25 cents if today’s prices drop below the 20-day moving average, or the middle BB.
This retracement is normal. Note that XRP has almost doubled, up 95% since bottoming up from Dec 2020.
Therefore, it is possible that XRP may even fall to 21 cents if 25 cents support doesn’t hold.
