XRP Price is Tracing Support

Looking at the six-hour chart allows us to trace one support area.

The area is found near 2420 satoshis.

At the time of writing, the XRP price was trading slightly above it.

XRP Price Technical Indicators

A look at the daily moving averages (MA) reiterates the strong resistance above the current price.

The XRP price is trading below both the 10- and 20-day MAs, which have previously made a bearish cross.

Additionally, the upward move discussed in the introduction stopped once the price reached the 20-day MA.

However, when we incorporate the RSI & MACD into the analysis, we can see that the price has been developing signs that it will begin an upward move.

Both have been generating significant bullish divergence since August.

This divergence preceded the upward move beginning on September 6.

The level of divergence is extremely significant and visible in long-term time-frames.

Therefore, we believe that the current upward move is not yet finished and there are further increase in store for the XRP price.

Bullish Hammer

Additionally, a closer look at daily candlesticks gives us one more reversal sign.

On September 6, the XRP price created a bullish hammer.

This is considered a reversal sign, especially when it is found at the end of a downtrend.

Combined with the bullish divergence, this reiterates our belief that further increases are in store for XRP.

Future Movement

One support area is traced below.

The price is likely to decrease until it reaches it before it begins an upward move.


The XRP price is not following a clear trading pattern.

However, it is trading slightly above a significant support area.

For hypothetical trading purposes, even though we believe XRP will increase, the current price position does not seem favorable for the initiation of a trade.
