Ripple’s XRP can surprise and open up the Altcoins season

Tuesday marked a third day in a row of full control of the bears over the crypto market. Bitcoin fell below $ 10,000 and the rest of the top 3 coins also had to “lick their wounds.” ETH/USD fell from 217 to $ 211.85 this Tuesday. Ripple bulls struggle to keep the price above $ 0.30. During the day, the total capitalization of the crypto market fell from $ 281.9 billion to $ 265.97 billion at the time of my writing.

The big news of the day was that Justin Sun, the CEO of TRON and BitTorrent, was forced to cancel lunch with Warren Buffett just 3 days before the meeting because of sudden health complications. As a result, Tron was the most losing coin yesterday, down 10.23%, with broke below $ 0.024.

 

Ripple’s XRP moves in sync with the market

The third largest digital coin with a current market capitalization of $ 13.1 billion lost nearly 4% of its value on a daily basis. The coin is trading almost unchanged at the beginning of today. XRP is moving in a short-term bearish trend amid the ubiquitous sell-off on the cryptocurrency market.

 

Ripple Tech Picture

On a daily chart, XRP/USD bulls will have to break over $ 0.3175 to mitigate the initial downward pressure. This resistance was created by merging several technical levels, including 50 SMA on 4-hour chart and 200 SMA on hourly chart. A convincing breakthrough above this zone may extend the upside momentum to $ 0.3230 (100 SMA on hourly timeframe) and a psychological level of $ 0.33. This resistance is followed by $ 0.3340 (100 SMA and the lower line of Bollinger Bands on a 4-hour chart).

On the downside, the first support is $ 0.3040 (the bottom line of the Bollinger Bands), followed by a psychological level of $ 0.30. The latter level creates a strong barrier that should probably stop the bear’s pressure for a while. A clear breakthrough under these supports, however, will trigger more sell-off, with the first target going to be in the region of $ 0.2865 (the July’s low).

But given that the short-term RSI remains flat near to the oversold territory, we can assume that the downside impulse will be slowing down at this stage.

MACD on the daily chart also shows a bullish cross profile that can lead to a rise to new highs at any time. The less likely scenario, I think, is to see a fall below $ 0.30 before reversing the short-term trend. In conclusion, I think bulls are obviously not losing positions and remain at the levels reached with last week’s profits.

Will Ripple keep the recovery mode

The crypto currency market keeps bullish sentiments

Bitcoin and other major Altcoins remain on green territory in the early Asian hours on Wednesday. The total capitalization of all digital coins in circulation reached 250 billion dollars, while the average daily volume of trade exceeded $ 80 billion.

Market movements were mainly dominated by speculative moods, including FOMO around Bitcoin SV. The Bitfinex exchange went into the initial stock exchange (IEO) business. The newly introduced service is called Tokinex. Starting Thursday, this week, the service will release its first token. On June 13, there will be a second token launch. Bitfinex is not the first crypto exchange to offer this type of service. In fact, exchange platforms such as Binance, OKCoin and KuCoin already offer similar services to the industry.

But the main and hot topic in the past few days remains the rise of Bitcoin. Investors, however, seem to remain aside while trying to find out if the last rally in the main crypto currencies is a sign pointing to the beginning of a prolonged upside trend.

At the regulatory front, the US SEC received another request to change the listing rule, which would allow it to list shares in an investment trust for Bitcoin. But the regulator is obviously not in a hurry to take decisions on Bitcoin issues, as it has postponed his decision to VanEck’s ETF again.

Ripple struggles to hold above $ 0.40

Undoubtedly, in the top 3 of the best performing crypto currencies, except Bitcoin, are Ethereum and Ripple. After the formation of a support base over $ 0.3600, the Ripple price recovered more than $ 0.3800 and $ 0.4000 against the US dollar. The XRP/USD pair even rose above $ 0.4150 and the 100-hourly simple moving average. Nevertheless, the price did not hold convincingly above the resistance level of $ 0.4300. As a result, we saw a new three-day downside correction below $ 0.4150 and $ 0.4000. The price even broke the 100-hr SMA and tested $ 0.3600.

Ripple’s price is now consolidating above key levels of support against US dollar, but declining against Bitcoin. XRP has to stay above the $ 0.3600-0.3614 support zone in order to be on positive territory.

The next major resistance is close to $ 0.4150. A clear breakthrough over it could lead the price for retesting of $ 0.4300/50 before the bulls head back to the high for 2019 at 0.4780. If Ripple is able to break through this level, then nothing should stop the upside momentum before the psychological level of $ 0.5000.

In the downward direction since the beginning of this week, we have a bullish trend line of hourly chart, located close to $ 0.3970 at the moment. A clear break below the trend line is needed for the price to test again $ 0.3614/00 (17th May low) before falling to $ 0.3350 (the 50-day SMA).

Ripple continues to trade in the narrow range of 2019

The crypto market has a mixed picture on Thursday morning. Bitcoin remains on a positive territory in the region of $ 5,387, while most of the Altcoins suffered losses for the past 7 days. The total market capitalization dropped to $ 175 billion from 177 billion on Monday. Average daily trading volumes were at $ 41 billion.

The biggest news currently is the new Cosmos Coin (ATOM) in the Top-20 cryptocurrencies. After the listing of Binance, Cosmos (ATOM) experienced a sudden increase in volumes and the price spiked more than 14% overnight. In recent weeks, ATOM has been added to some of the leading exchanges, but listing on the Binance with zero fees has increased the impact of the project and the trading activity. At the time of my writing, Cosmos is ranked 15th in the global cryptocurrency ranking with a market value of $ 834 million.

And the main cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, enjoyed a 22% growth in April and ended a third consecutive month with a rise for the first time since December 2017. This remarkable development has made experts in digital currencies wonder what to expect from the digital asset in the coming months. Look forward to our next, more detailed Bitcoin analysis to find out.

On the other hand, Ripple remains within the annoying trading range of 2019. Despite the positive news, XRP/USD fails to commit to a specific direction that continues to be the topic of the year. According to the latest news, South Africa-based iCE3X has announced the addition of XRP to Ripple as a new trading asset on its trading platform. XRP will be paired with the local currency, the South African rand, and Bitcoin also.

Since 1st of May, Nasdaq began sending real-time XRP data from Brave Coin to its Global Index Data Service. The index is known as the XRP Liquid Index, which is designed to provide a real-time spot on a reference rate that will be for the price of 1 XRP, quoted in US dollars.

Ripple remains under downside pressure

The XRP/USD pair has been having difficulty in 2019 with the breaking of the narrow range between 0.2810 – 0.3787. Earlier in April, there was hope with an upside momentum, but it was quite short-lived as the bears pushed the price back into the sluggish trading conditions.

For the past 24 hours, Ripple’s XRP is traded on a negative territory, losing around 0.23%. Bulls have failed to capitalize on Tuesday’s profits, and the hope of recovery seems to fade.

The technical levels for Ripple are intact

According to the technical analysis, the third largest coin has been trading in its range with bearish bias during the Asian session today. However, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) recovered to about 46 from the levels slightly above 30.00. The MACD indicator is trying to slope up and may soon move into positive territory. This means that there is still a chance for bulls to break through, at least until the technical indicators confirm it.

Ripple will have convincingly to correct above $ 0.3100 in order to come out of the intraday range between $ 0.2850 – $ 0.3100. If the price succeeds to correct above the highs of Wednesday and Tuesday at $ 0.03096 and 0.03122, the next target for the buyers will be $ 0.3200. However, 50- and 100-day SMA moving averages are likely to limit growth above $ 0.3200. A clear break above this level, however, may expand the upside movement to $ 0.3300 and $ 0.3500.

XRP/USD is traded in a narrow range and bears seem to take control

XRP/USD traded around $ 0.3130 at the time of writing, down slightly from the beginning of the day. The third largest crypto coin, with a current market value of $ 13 billion, has recently been caught in a range with bearish bias, moving fully in sync with the market. On Tuesday, most of the top-20 crypto-currencies were colored in red.

Ethereum Classic was the remarkable exception as the coin rose by nearly 5% in the last 24 hours. Monero and Cardano also showed a positive momentum of 2.06% and 3.62% growth. For Bitcoin $ 4,000 remains the line in the sand. A major change in moods in the broader market will be necessary for Bitcoin to breakout from current levels.

XRP is now integrated with an e-commerce platform Woocommerce

Meanwhile, Ripple has made progress on its way to mass adoption through integration with the e-commerce platform Woocommerce. Integration with Woocommerce can become a milestone of XRP development, as millions of users will be able to use the crypto currency for their internal purchases without any problems.

On Tuesday, Bloomberg cites a report called The Tie, which claims that the world’s major crypto exchanges can report incorrect trading volumes. The report concludes that 75% of exchanges report trading volumes that are more than 2 times larger than what would be reasonable to expect from Internet traffic demand on the websites of the 100 top crypto exchanges.

Bloomberg said traders and regulators have been concerned about the crypto exchanges that manipulate trading volumes to make digital coins to have greater demand.

Despite the news that questions the credibility and reliability of crypto currencies, Switzerland’s biggest online retailer, Digitec GalaxusAG, has decided to accept digital coins. His Swiss customers can now make crypto payments that support Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and so on.

Technical Analysis of XRP/USD:

Despite the recovery at the beginning of Tuesday, Ripple’s XRP fell from the first major resistance level at $ 0.3260. More importantly, Ripple’s XRP failed to break through $ 0.3248 (the high of 13th March) for the seventh straight day.

For this week, however, the recovery of the digital currency is currently effectively limited to $ 0.3220. A clear breakout above this resistance may indicate a change in the intraday signals to upside. In this case, the first target of the bulls will be 0.3266, followed by the 0.3300 psychological level. But while the XRP/USD fails to break through 0.3475 (high of February), trading in the range between $ 0.28 – $ 0.34 by the end of January should continue.

Failure to break above $ 0.3220 can take Ripple’s XRP down later in the day (in view of the bearish sentiment of the entire crypto market). The first support zone is seen at $ 0.3063 (bottom of Thursday). A clear break below this level may trigger a further downside momentum for testing of $ 0.30.

In addition to this scenario, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) of the 1-hour chart has taken a dip towards to the neutral zone of the overbought zone.
