The price of XRP/USD on Binance
is analyzed at one-hour intervals from Apr 24 to May 3 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 dollars and euros are discussed in the final two sections.
On Apr 26, the price reached a low of $0.276. 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 20, the price made a high of $0.337. It has been gradually decreasing since, creating several lower highs.
Tracing these highs gives us a descending resistance line.
The resistance and support lines combine to create a symmetrical triangle:
It is likely that the price will continue to trade inside the confines of the triangle until a decisive move occurs. In order to predict the direction of the move, a look at technical indicators is required.
In this section, the price of XRP/USD is analyzed alongside the RSI and the MACD.
About the Indicators: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.
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.
These are traced in the graph below:
On May 1, the price made a low of $0.314. It continued to make a lower low of $0.312 on May 3.
Similarly, the RSI and the MACD made the first low on May 1. However, they have continued to generate higher values since. This is known as bullish divergence and often precedes price increases.
These indicators suggest that the price will increase towards the resistance line. A breakout is possible.
We now incorporate resistance areas into our analysis to better determine future price fluctuations following a breakout.
Resistance areas are created when the price visits the same level several times. They can act as an area of reversal in case a breakout occurs.
One resistance area is traced below for Ripple in both dollars and euros in the graphs below:
The closest resistance area is found near $0.335 and €0.285. If the price breaks out from the triangle, it is likely to land here.
Summary of Analysis
Based on this analysis, XRP is likely to increase towards the resistance line of the triangle and eventually break out.
