Ripple Price (XRP) News and Talking Points
- Cryptocurrency sell-off drags Ripple (XRP) sharply lower.
- Losses may rack-up if technical support levels are breached.
Ripple Price Likely to Crumble if Important Chart Support Fails
Ripple has fallen into an important technical trading zone with further losses likely if support fails to hold. The latest price action continues to show market exhaustion with traders moving out of Ripple after its recent stellar gains. We have looked extensively at Ripple in our weekly cryptocurrency webinars and have repeatedly highlighted the support offered between $0.86 and $0.92, made up of a combination of highs and lows from mid-December 2017 onwards. This zone also includes the important 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the December 7 – January 4 rally at $0.865.
The latest daily chart also shows a series of lower highs being made - a negative chart set-up - while the stochastic indicator at the bottom of the chart is pointing sharply lower indicating further losses. If support fails, the next level on the downside comes in around $0.70 ahead of the February 6 low of $0.58.
