Ripple in the last week was on a bearish run after it appeared a break above $4 would happen in the previous week. Will price resume upside or the dip will continue. The following 14-17 January Ripple price prediction looks at the two most traded Ripple pairs - XRP/USD and XRP/BTC.

Price was once around $4 before a fast drop followed. Since last December bullish breakout, price has completed an impulse wave which meant that a bearish correction was to follow. According to the Elliott wave theory, price trends in 5-waves and corrects in 3-waves. Isn't what we are having now - a 3-wave dip that usually follows an impulse wave? We should expect price to resume upside this week by first break above $2. The more price stays below $2, the deeper the correction could go. Basically, a price move above wave (i) top could lead to a strong bullish move and send price upside again.

Just like XRP/USD, XRP/BTC is also making a 3-wave dip after a strong bullish impulse wave rally. In this case, price could be in the 4th wave which still stays above 0.00012056. A new 5-wave rally is possible to 0.000256 if the bearish nature of BTC persists and XRP improves. Alternatively, there is a possibility of a head and shoulder pattern which will be confirmed once price breaks below the 0.00012056 support.
In conclusion, Ripple has a higher chance of being bullish this week than not. We should expect some gain this week.
