We did not arbitrarily pick 2/9. It's proven that the majority of investors in Crypto are millennial and they have no idea what happened much more than a month ago, so this is where our charting loses steam.
Within the valid range (2/9-3/13) you see what is trying desperately to turn into an Asteroid Breakout. The last time we saw the Asteroid Breakout (followed by a trailing Pacman) was on December 1st, exactly 12 days before the last large bull run took place.

Notes: Should the price continue to drop, then the value of XRP is lower. But if it rises, we have potential for an increased value in XRP against Fiat. There is a third possibility, that it may go sideways. But generally speaking you can 100% expect to see either up, down, or sideways trading in the foreseeable future.
Forecasted price expectations are $5 in the short term, with a crest over $10 by summer if the bull run stays strong and millennial are able to borrow enough money from their parents.
However, should the price fail to increase it is possible that it could decrease or stay flat until it decides to make a move in one direction or another.
The blue lines have been added as buy indicators. You should buy at all prices and continue to HODL.
