Ripple (XRP) Jump and Slump Nears Important Support
Ripple (XRP) volatility is very much abck with the crypto jumping from $0.30 to $0.75 in a mateer of a couple of days before slumping all the way back down to $0.45 in quick order. News that XRP technology had been adopted by a top US financial institution drove the rally but XRP the token is not being usedfor now. This difference between Ripple the company and Ripple the token continues to make putting any kind of valuation on XRP extremely difficultand the marekt may have to wait for the SEC decision on whether they see XRP as a security or not.
The latest Ripple sell-off has halted for now just above a reasonably important support zone between $0.34 and $0.425, and this needs to hold to give bulls a reason to re-enter the market. If this support is broken, expect XRP to trade back down to old support around $0.25.
