Ripple (XRP) in an Ascending Channel
The price broke down from the channel on Jun 4. The breakdown occurred with significant volume.
The Ripple (XRP) price briefly traded below $0.4 before rebounding.
Where will it go next? Let’s take a look at some technical indicators and try to answer.
In yesterday’s analysis, we stated that:
Both the RSI and the MACD reached the first high on May 15. However, they have both generated lower values since. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes drops in price.
Furthermore, it seems as if the price has created a double top, which is a bearish reversal pattern.
The use of these indicators makes it likely that the price will decrease. In the short-term, a breakdown from the ascending channel is likely.
As seen above, the breakdown from the ascending channel already occurred. However, the double top pattern took close to 15 days to materialize. Therefore, it is likely that this is not the end of the downward move.
One support area and one resistance area is traced for Ripple (XRP) below.
The closest support area is found near $0.37. If the double top pattern proves to be correct, the Ripple price (XRP) will eventually reach this area. The analysis of technical indicators supports this claim.
The closest resistance area is found near $0.45. A significant increase against the current trend would be required for the price to reach this area. Currently, there are no technical signs pointing towards this scenario. However, if the current daily candle closes above $0.415, it would create a hammer, which is a bullish reversal candlestick.
To conclude, the Ripple price (XRP) recently broke down from an ascending channel. Furthermore, it has created a double top pattern in long-term timeframes. This bearish reversal pattern, combined with the readings from technical indicators makes it likely that the price will decrease and eventually reach the support area outlined above.
