Ripple Technical Analysis

Ripple is bearish and is down 6 percent in the last week. Despite the downtrend, a stand out has been the resilience of buyers. According to the candlestick charts, a Harami Bullish candlestick pattern has emerged in the 1D timeframe. The above-mentioned pattern signals the bullish reversal from this point. This Pattern is characterized by a small white real body contained within a prior relatively long black real body. The smaller the second candlestick, the stronger is the reversal signal. However, the Pattern needs confirmation on the next candlestick.

Moreover, the 100 SMA line is above the 200 SMA which indicates that the path of least resistance is to the upside. Thus, a bullish rally might be seen in the upcoming days. 

As per the 1D charts, Ripple is stable. The daily EMA (200) having the value of 0.50 is still to be achieved. Ripple is currently resisting near $0.46- $0.47. However, the daily Volume Weighted Moving Average (20) somehow has recovered from the oversold zone to the buying zone. The daily Hull Moving Average (9) which is in the sell zone having a value of 0.47.

If Ripple can surpass the $0.52 resistance zone, it will be possible for XRPUSD to initiate a long-awaited rally to the upside. However, if it fails to break out of a major resistance level, then there exists a possibility that it might struggle to maintain momentum and falls back to the weekly support near $0.40 level.

  • The RSI(14) value is near 50 which signals "Neutral" in weekly time-frame
  • The William%R signals the "Buy" action on the 1W timeframe.
  • MACD(12,26) – "Buy" signal in weekly charts.
  • ATR(14) signals Ripple is less volatile.
