Ripple (XRP) Analysis: Longs Lose 50% in Two Months

Ripple Price, Analysis and Chart

- A tortuous grind lower with further losses expected.

- Retail remain heavily long XRP from much higher levels.

Ripple (XRP) – Losses Continue to Rack-Up

The third-largest crypto token by market capitalization continues to leak lower and changes hands at levels last seen nearly three months ago. After rallying back to around $0.90 - $0.95 in late-April/early-May, XRP has shed 50% of its value and now threatens weak support around $0.45. If this support breaks - which currently looks likely when observing recent momentum – XRP may well fall all the way back to the $0.20 area seen before the sharp December rally. The RSI indicator is nearing oversold territory which may stem losses in the near-term but recent price actions shows rebounds are being sold and prices then move lower.

And despite this heavy sell-off, retail investors continue to hold Ripple, according to the IG Client Sentiment. This indicatorshows clients remain heavily long XRP and have remained net-long since December 25 when Ripple traded near $2.49.This indicator shows the number of client’s net-long of XRP - not the volume of client holdings – and signals an extreme one-way positioning in the token.
