Ripple to set the stage for 18% gains

  • XRP price created a double top formation, leading to an 8% downswing.
  • This downtrend is likely to continue until it hits $0.821, the 62% Fibonacci retracement level.
  • A bounce from this barrier promises an 18% bull rally to $0.961.

XRP price formed the second peak on June 14, indicating the formation of a double top. As a result, Ripple is starting to decline, heading toward an immediate support level.

While the current move from the remittance token might appear to be bearish, it is a minor retracement expected to morph into a rally.

XRP price at an inflection point

XRP price rallied 18% to $0.93 after tagging the 70.5% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.783 on June 8. Although this run-up was undone quickly, a similar leg-up created the equal top at $0.93 on June 14 and is experiencing a downswing.

The immediate support level at $0.831 or the 62% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.821 will likely cushion this downswing. At this point, a resurgence of buying pressure might kick-start a bull rally that pushes XRP price up by 18% to the resistance barrier at $0.969.

If the buyers have their backs into this uptrend, Ripple might venture higher and tag the range high at $1.103. This move would be a 33% advance from $0.821.

Supporting this ascent is the 30-day Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) model, currently hovering in the opportunity zone at -10.42%. This fundamental index is used to measure the average profit/loss of investors that bought XRP in the past month.

A negative value indicates that the short-term market participants are selling, creating an opportunity for the long-term holders to accumulate.

Further clarifying that there is no risk of a sell-off is the whale transaction count metric, which tracks transfers worth $100,000 or more. Often a spike in this on-chain model coincides with the local tops, indicating whales offloading their holdings.

Since the large transaction count for XRP price dropped from 803 on June 2 to 242 on June 15, a sudden spike in selling pressure seems unlikely.

From a technical and an on-chain perspective, XRP price remains bullish in the mid-term. However, a decisive 4-hour candlestick close below 79% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.745 will invalidate the bullish thesis explained above.

In such a case, investors can expect Ripple to venture to the range low at $0.651.
