Ripple Price Prediction August 16, 2019
Ripple’s XRP is moving in a five weeks channel on the 4-hour time frame with a dominant bearish outlook. The current consolidation mode indicates an indecisive market. From a technical standpoint, Ripple (XRP) is more likely to rise than to fall. Still, bear in mind, at times crypto can be unpredicted as price may go either way.
Watching out for the next level of resistance; the $0.28, $0.29 and $0.30 levels seem closer for the bull sides. In the opposite direction, the XRP/USD pair may roll back to $0.25 support if the bears step back in the market. A break at $0.240 could establish a new 2019 low at $0.22 and below. At the time of writing, Ripple’s XRP remains under bearish control on the long-term.
At the moment, the market is accumulating. If we can see an increasing volume coupled with a bullish regroup, the XRP/USD pair will start to correct gain significantly on the upside. Otherwise, the bear pressure will become severe with losses. However, the price of Ripple’s XRP is expected to retest resistance at $0.30 before rally continues.
