Candlestick Arrangement

Like most crypto assets, Ripple (XRP) prices are improving and stabilizing. Even though bears are in charge, dropping 9.9 percent week-to-date, buyers are technically in charge. However, that largely depends on whether bulls can shore prices above 34 cents. The level did successful cap bulls in Q1 2019, and the resulting breakout in mid-May was enough to open the buy sluice gates.

Nonetheless, XRP is in a consolidation. From the daily chart, the zone between 34 cents and 40 cents is a strong support. Besides, it is the 50-61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement levels of May trade range. Therefore, if bulls build up on todays reaction, XRP could as well surge above 50 cents as traders load up with targets at 60 cents and later 80 cents.

Technical Indicator

Confirming the uptrend of mid-May will be a wide-ranging bull bar closing above 50 cents. Propelling buyers and setting in motion the next wave of higher highs to 80 cents is that the breakout candlestick must be with high trading volumes exceeding 184 million of May 14.
