At BeInCrypto, we publish regular price analyses and predictions for XRP. In our Apr 25 analysis of XRP, we predicted that XRP—also known as Ripple— would experience price increases. Our prediction was validated on Apr 29 when the price reached the resistance area we have defined below. To learn more, take a look at our most recent XRP/USD($) and XRP/EUR(€) analysis below:
On Apr 3, 2019, XRP reached a high close to $0.386 and €0.338. Subsequently, XRP began dropping. By Apr 15, lows near $0.313 and €0.278 were reached.XRP subsequently rebounded but was unable to recover from the losses earlier in April. After reaching levels near $0.35 and €0.338, price losses intensified with a low below $0.30/ reached on Apr 25 and a low below €0.27 on Apr 25. Over the last several days, price began rising again. Will this rebound lead to a successful recovery or will XRP drop further? Let’s find out:

The price of XRP/USD on Binance is analyzed at 30-minute intervals from Apr 25 to Apr 29 to help determine current trading patterns. We do not include euros in this section because only one trading pair is needed to generate the current trading pattern. Both XRP/USD and XRP/EUR are discussed in the final two sections.On Apr 26, the price reached a low of $0.296. Several market cycles were subsequently completed. The price has created higher lows each time. Tracing these lows gives us an ascending support line: On Apr 24, the price reached a high of $0.306. It has continued to increase, reaching several higher highs. An ascending resistance line is created by tracing these highs. Taken together, the resistance and support lines combine to create an ascending channel: It is likely that the price will continue trading inside the confines of the channel until a decisive move occurs. In order to predict the direction of the move, a look at technical indicators in a longer time-frame is required.
In this section, the price of XRP/USD is analyzed at four-hour intervals from Apr 1 to Apr 29 alongside RSI and the MACD to predict possible future price movements for XRP.
The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.
The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a trend indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages (long and short-term) and the price. It is used to measure the strength of a move.
Both of these indicators are shown in the chart below:
On Apr 24, the price made a low of $0.315. It made a lower low of $0.276 on Apr 24. Similarly, the RSI and the MACD made the first low on Apr 24. However, they have continued to generate higher values. This is known as bullish divergence and often precedes price increases. Furthermore, we can see that the price is trading inside a descending channel since Apr 2. Based on these indicators, we believe that the price of XRP will increase at the rate predicted by the short-term ascending channel until it reaches the resistance line of the long-term descending channel. A breakout is possible.
Reversal AreasWe now incorporate resistance areas into our analysis to better determine future price fluctuations.
Resistance and support areas are created when the price visits the same level several times. They can act as an area of reversal in case a breakdown or a breakout occurs.
One resistance area is traced below for XRP in both dollars and euros in the graphs below:The closest resistance area is found near $0.35 and €0.31. We believe that the price will eventually reach this levels. However, this may not be a short-term target. On the contrary, the price of XRP may rise within the descending channel to reach the long-term resistance line and fall back toward the support. At some point in the future, we do believe a breakout is likely, but we cannot determine exactly when this will occur or how low prices will drop prior to a breakout.
Summary of AnalysisBased on this analysis, XRP is likely to increase toward the resistance line of the wedge. We believe that the price will eventually break out, but it is possible that greater prices losses may occur before this time. Once the price of XRP reaches the resistance line, the price may drop back toward support rather than break out.
