XRP Price Analysis

Weekly chart

On a weekly basis, XRP is up 14 percent as statistics indicate. However, that is not important because what we are after is the strength of buyers which are marked by the level of market participation. While recent lower lows were accompanied by declining volumes, buy momentum is building as they maintain prices around our ideal buy zone between 50 percent and 78.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level. These levels coincide with our important reaction points at 40 cents and 55 cents on the upside and that is why we recommend buys for conservative buyers once we see prices edge past 55 cents triggering bulls aiming at 80 cents and later $1.

Daily chart

Back to the daily chart and our buy zone is clear. As it stands, prices are still oscillating within Oct 15 high low meaning from an effort versus result scenario, bulls stand a chance. Like in our last XRP price analysis, we recommend risk-off traders to ramp up at stop prices with stops at 40 cents—previous resistance now support, with first targets as aforementioned above.
