XRP Price in a Symmetrical Triangle
Since September 2018, the XRP price has been trading inside the symmetrical triangle outlined below.
After touching the resistance line at $0.48 on June 25, the XRP price began a rapid decrease.
At the time of writing, it was trading at $0.32, slightly above the support line, which is currently at $0.3.
A look at the moving averages suggests that the price will continue to decrease.
A bearish cross between the 10- and 20-period MAs transpired on July 2.
Since then, the XRP price has been trading below both of them — facing very close resistance from the former.
While it made an attempt to move above the MAs on July 5, it was ultimately unsuccessful and the price began to decrease shortly after.
A look at the weekly logarithmic chart for XRP shows that the price is trading very close to a significant support area.
The logarithmic chart is used in order to better visualize large price fluctuations.
The support area is found between $0.26-0.28.
It was initially created by the highs of April 2017. Furthermore, XRP has not traded below it since December 2017.
Similar to the daily MAs, a look at the weekly moving average gives a bearish outlook.
The 10- and 20-week MAs made a bullish cross at the beginning of May. Since then, the XRP price has been gradually increasing, trading above both of them.
However, the recent decrease caused it to drop below both MAs. This is a bearish sign that suggests that further decreases are in store for price.
The XRP price is trading inside a symmetrical triangle.
Moving averages support a decrease in the support line.
If the price breaks down, there is significant support near $0.26-$0.28.
