XRP Price Analysis
Still the second largest cryptocurrency per market capitalization, the price of the XRP token is currently stable. The sellers have been dominant since on Friday last week but the buyers are now in control on a technical level. Still, this isn’t the best time to consider longs. Taking a neutral stand for a while will be a good idea. This is because the bulls are struggling to hold on to the January 30th gains.
The price of XRP may be supported for a few trading sessions but it’s still better for traders to wait for a price surge above the January 30th high. This bullish move is going to automatically trigger buying that may take the price of XRP as high as $0.42. Dalmas Ngetich, from NewsBtc, suggests that the XRP bulls will only take full control of the market if they are able to surge above the January 30th high. The trading volume will also need to increase.
At the time of writing, XRP is trading at $0.290624. This shows that it is down by 2.74% and down against BTC by 0.89%. The trading volume over a 24 hour period is $453,431,702 and the market capitalization is $11,964,767,372.
