Ripple Price Prediction for August 10, 2019
After the September 7 surge, Ripple’s XRP tested the $0.266 resistance level, followed by a bearish flag pattern. While the bulls gain control of the market, the price actions approach the lower boundary of the wedge, looking for nearby supports at the $0.256. Further support may be located at $0.253 and $0.250 if the price breaks below the channel pattern.
However, we may see a bounce back at channel’s lower boundary if the $0.256 support can suppress selling pressure. The potential resistance to watch out for is the $0.262 level. A break-up might lead to a bullish continuation towards $0.265 and $0.268 on the upside. Considering the current trend, Ripple (XRP) is suggested bearish on the hourly time frame.
As we can see, the channel pattern has been acting as a support and resistance line for the market over the past three days now. If the channel’s lower boundary fails to act as support, the XRP market may roll back to the $0.25 price level. On the other hand, a bullish continuation may play out if the channel’s upper boundary fails to act as a resistance level for the market.
