Ripple Price Falls Below $0.43 As Bears Take Control Of The Market

Following the massive dump in the past week, Ripple price regains its stance on a long trend. Moreover, bulls must tower the bears in this current market momentum. Last week wasn’t a good trading week for Ripple buyers, as the XRP token recorded a massive 42% loss. As a result, the week closed below $0.4255. Notably, the entire week had the token’s price steadily following a huge bearish trend, declining to $0.4018 before climbing back to $0.4123 and terminating there for the week. Notably, most indicators have been engrossed in the oversold zone, implying the possibility of a temporary uptrend. However, the token’s price must create a higher low and higher high to validate this momentum reversal. This also means that the bulls must push XRP’s price up to $0.65 before it can create form a bullish trend. What Are The Odds? Due to the massive decline, one can only expect the XRP token to record a bullish momentum, or bullish mean reversal, temporarily. On the other hand, we can expect it to be short-term, given the present market structure. The technical oscillator’s value shows that the token tested the all-time-low (ATL) in the hourly, daily, and weekly charts.

Thus, a rejuvenated buying pressure would force the price to reach the 50-day Exponential Moving Average before testing the psychological $0.50 mark. On the other hand, a decline in the bearish momentum would cause the coin to continue in a steady decline or downtrend. Should XRP break below the current session’s low value, it’d test Friday’s low at $0.40. Technical Indicators Moving Average Convergence Divergence: The MACD trades underneath the midline with steadily growing bullish momentum. Relative Strength Index: The RSI hovers close to the average line, having no stated directional bias. A Brief On Ripple?
