Ripple (XRP) Needs Further Consolidation if it is to Push Higher
The volatile trade over the weekend saw Ripple drop form $0.68 to a low of $0.53 in a 24-hour period before rallying back to a current level of $0.65. The fall was part of a wider sell-off in the whole cryptocurrency space that saw the market’s capitalization hit a four-month low of $276 billion. Korean Won buyers were noticeable, trading at an average price of $0.678 at the Bithumb exchange.
The one-hour chart highlights the sharp rebound but still leaves the market undecided on the next move with lower prices still more likely with the green $0.58 to $0.68 one-hour candle vulnerable likely to be re-tested.
