Price Prediction: Panic as XRP Hangs At The Edge Of A High Cliff

BINANCE:XRPUSD   XRP / U.S. Dollar
  • Ripple is drawing closer to a rising wedge pattern breakdown.
  • Closing the day under the 50 SMA would validate the downswing to $0.4
  • Ripple must bring down the resistance at $0.5 to come out of the woods.

Ripple is holding between a crucial resistance and support as the Asian session gives way to the European session on Wednesday. The cross-border token has recently been rejected from $0.5, opening the Pandora box. At the time of writing, XRP is exchanging hands at $0.46 amid a potential breakdown to $0.4.

The news that Ripple has parted ways was calmly received by investors, perhaps because the company is fighting a vital lawsuit filed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC took Ripple to court for allegedly selling unregistered tokens to investors and staying away from regulation for over eight years.

Meanwhile, the correction from the resistance at $0.5 is likely to be a ripple effect of the news that the blockchain company no longer collaborates with MoneyGram. The 4-hour chart has printed a rising wedge . This pattern has a bearish bias and come comes into the picture amid an uptrend.

The rising wedge reveals the bullish grip is getting exhausted while bears are preparing to swing into action. A rising volume characterizes a break under the pattern. Therefore, the breakdown tends to be rapid and must be timed accurately to make the most out of it.

For now, the least resistance path is downwards, especially with XRP losing both the 50 Simple Moving Average and the 100 SMA support. These broken anchor zones are likely to flip into resistance zones, making a recovery an uphill battle.

It is worth mentioning that the massive breakdown to $0.4 will fail to occur if XRP closes the day above the 50 SMA . Moreover, gaining ground above the 100 SMA will allow bulls to regain control and push past $0.5.

Ripple intraday levels

  • Spot rate: $0.45
  • Relative change: -0.025
  • Percentage change: -5%
  • Trend: Bearish
  • Volatility: Expanding

one would hope it would break out to the upside. With all the SEC troubles still unresolved it's a risky bet.

@CarpeMomentum, I don't know. Agree with the "troubles" but zoomed out the sentiment seemed to be already priced in. The case could be settled, the listing could begin again. Kind of, it can't get worse then this. I bought back last week on that big dip, but indeed with a high risk(swing) trade to 0.50
