XRP 4-hour chart
The XRP map above highlighted a period of market instability highlighted by bulged Bollinger Bands, with only small intervals of low volatility where the bands converged. With the market’s high uncertainty, XRP may be heading for another correction.
Bollinger Bands have been used to predict times of high price uncertainty. However, at the time of publication, the Bollinger bands were convergent. In the past, these periods of consolidation were accompanied by a sharp price swing, and we may see a continuation of this pattern. On the maps, the effect of the market swing could be less pronounced. The signal line has crossed over the candlesticks, showing that the price is trending downward.
Meanwhile, purchasing demand was decreasing as the relative strength index recovered from overbought territory. However, it has stayed close to the overbought region, indicating that selling pressure has been steadily increasing. Awesome oscillator noted that the price momentum has already moved to the bearish zone.
Take profit: $1.50
Risk to Reward: 1.78
The latest XRP map shows that the digital asset has been unpredictable for some time. The present brief respite may be followed by a price drop as selling pressure builds. This decline will force XRP to test support at $1.50, after which it may consolidate further.
