XRP Price Speculation Vs Technicals

XRP price has shown a considerable uptick in social media tweets and discussions. Infamous Crypto and Stock Market bullruns have been provoked with help from social media influence in the past. 

Additionally, the long-held theory that  Ripple’s besiegement of the US dollar has found new fuel.

XRP Technical Analysis 

Unfortunately Ripple’s XRP price has not fully correlated with the social media hype. On Friday 8/19 the digital remittance token witnessed a 10% liquidation falling beneath a historical descending parallel channel. The bearish cross of the 8- and 21-day simple moving averages near the $0.37 level acted as the catalyst to induce the selling frenzy. 


XRP price currently trades at $0.33. Traders should be very cautious at attempting to buy a dip as previous outlooks have forecasted target zones near $0.28 and possibly $0.24. Invalidation of the macro bearish thesis remains at $0.48. If the invalidation level is breached an optimal bull-environment could ensue with targets comfortably over $1.00 in the midterm. Updates will be issued if and key levels change for the XRP price.
