Ripple (XRP) Bounce Back Should be Treated with Caution

Ripple Chart and Talking Points

- Ripple lost 20% on Saturday before the third-largest cryptocurrency rallied back to pre-weekend levels.

- The re-test of three-month lows may point to further downside.

If you are interested in trading cryptocurrencies we have just released a new Guide to Day Trading Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies to help you navigate the market.

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.
