Ripple (XRP) Price Analysis: Charts Point to Further Losses

Ripple (XRP) Price Analysis: Charts Point to Further Losses

Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist

Ripple (XRP) Price, Chart and Analysis

  • Lower highs dominate the chart and the downtrend remains intact.
  • Cryptocurrency market capitalization off nearly $700 billion from its high.

Ripple (XRP) Downtrend Remains in Play

The latest Ripple daily chart shows further weakness in the second-largest crypto-coin after the latest support level gave way. Ripple had held up slightly better than its peers in the recent market sell-off but is now sliding lower and towards support at $0.375. A series of six lower high candles in a row confirms the bearish outlook, while XRP now trades below all three moving averages, highlighting weak market sentiment. A break below the next support level ($0.375) opens the way to the August 14 low of $0.247.

Ripple (XRP) Daily Price Chart (May – November 23, 2018)

Cryptocurrency Market Capitalization Falls Further

The cryptocurrency market is currently worth just over $141 billion, nearly $700 billion lower than its peak valuation of $830 billion+ in early January this year. The overall market capitalization is now back at a level last seen in early October 2017, just a few weeks before the market surged in value.

Investors remain net-long Ripple (96.1%) – and they have remained heavily net-long for months - but recent positional changes give us a mixed trading bias.
