- The Ripple (XRP) bulls have assumed control of the market following the last 24-hours price drop
- A newly symmetrical triangle is formed with a potential breakout lurking around the corner
Ripple (XRP) is showing a sign of weakness over the last 24-hours following the rapid price reduction from $0.27 level. In our previous Ripple’s XRP analysis, we mentioned possible vital levels of resistance at $0.28 and $0.29 with the “surge and squeeze,” which has eventually come into play.
Currently, the price of XRP has dropped back after losing 2.48%. However, the trading volume and market cap have been substantially decreased a bit due to the recent loss. Another thing to note is that Ripple’s XRP is carving a new symmetrical triangle, spotted on the 4-hour chart. This suggests a breakout for the market.

Ripple Price Prediction August 20, 2019
A look at the XRP/USD pair suggests a medium-term bearish trend. Meanwhile, the August 15 sharp recovery at $0.225 low has brought the market back to the $0.29 on a retracement, meeting the triangle’s upper boundary. While roaming, an upsurge could shoot a price at $0.29 and $0.30 resistance before breaking up to $0.31.
Now that the price is testing the triangle’s lower boundary, a bounce is likely. If a break occurs, we can expect a severe bear pressure to $0.26, $0.25 and $0.24 supports. From a technical standpoint, the bulls have assumed control of the market. We can expect a higher price to come into play if the market continues the upsurge.
The six days price variations have stuck trading in a newly symmetrical triangle, and as we can see on the chart, the Ripple (XRP)’s price has reached a tight angle. We can expect a surge in volatility to occur in no time. Let’s see how the market plays out in the next few hours.
