Ripple price is under bearish pressure against the US Dollar and could correct higher, but the previous support at $0.5500 may now prevent gains. Here is the Ripple forecast for today after it turned bearish below $0.55 mark.

Ripple Technical Analysis

Ripple price has fallen from recent highs of $0.61 mark since the beginning of the Ripple Swell event yesterday, dropping to $0.52 level. Now at just under $0.60 mark, it has been battling with Ethereum for the second biggest market capitalization in the world of cryptocurrencies.

As per the technical charts, Ripple breaks couple of important supports near the $0.5520 level against the USD. The coin recently faced an increased selling pressure and broke the $0.55 crucial support. The decline was such that the price even broke the $0.5500 support and the daily 100 SMA level.

The 100 SMA line is below the longer-term 200 SMA line which indicates that the path of least resistance is to the downside. This suggests that the pair might make a bearish move in the short-term as the gap between the moving average widened.

Moreover, if the pair failed to control the bearish pressure and breaks the strong support level near $0.49 level than a downward rally towards $0.47- $0.43 zone might be seen in upcoming days.

  • The relative strength index(14) value dip below 50 in daily time-frame signals – “Sell.” 
  • The STOCHRSI(14) value is near 100 – “Overbought” in daily time-frame.
  • According to ATR(14) indicator, the XRPUSD pair is highly volatile.
