Ripple News and Talking Points

- Ripple’s rally rudely interrupted – further losses may follow.

- Retail sentiment shows traders are overwhelmingly long XRP.

IG Client Sentimentshows 96.0% of traders are net-long Ripple with the ratio of traders long to short at 23.83 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Dec 25 when Ripple traded near $2.49; price has moved 68.7% lower since then. Download the guide to see why changes in client holdings matter.

Ripple (XRP) Chart Shows Heavy Daily Loss

After doubling in April – from $0.45 to $0.96 Ripple met heavy sellers in the last 24 hours and slumped back down to a low around $0.74, painting an ominous technical picture. The sell-off was predicated on media reports that Gary Gensler, the former chairman of the CFTC, suggested that XRP may be classified as a security and that regulators need to bring some clarity to the situation. Although not a new situation – Ripple have previously denied that XRP is a security – the news story hit Ripple hard, highlighting the fragile nature of the recent rally. And with retail customers very heavily long of XRP (See IG Client Sentiment above), further sell-offs may become self-fulfilling as retail jetison the crypto-token.

On the short-term chart support at $0.71 before a chart gap, and the 200-day moving average, between $0.59 and $0.62.

We will be discussing a range of cryptocurrency charts and price set-ups at our Weekly Cryptocurrency Webinar on Thursday at 10:30am.
