Ripple (XRP) Closes Prior Hour Down -0.03%; 2 Day Down Streak Ended, Price Base in Formation Over Past 14 Days

The Hourly View for XRP

Last Updated June 7, 2021, 06:017 GMT

Currently, Ripple’s price is down $0 (-0.03%) from the hour prior. Ripple has seen its price go down 24 out of the past 30 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bears. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see some doji and pin bar candlestick patterns on Ripple. Given that we see an uptrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. With that said, traders should also note the downtrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, so the meaning of the candles may require further exploration. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

    This litigation will soon be over. Even if we are tired now, after all we will be grateful for this legal case. No other cryptocurrency has ever been given such a powerful catalyst as #xrp. This case will soon prove to be a great gift to us. Hang in there, it won’t be long now.

  • From LeoHadjiloizou:

    Watching the Ripple wallet that holds Jed’s XRP drop below 1 bn XRP for the first time (on June 3rd) was a reminder that the end is near. That same wallet held more than 3.2 bn XRP on Dec 31, 2020. 648 mn XRP in that wallet currently
    588 mn in tacostand
    Jed’s XRP = 1,236 bn
