The overall Ripple price action sentiment is still slightly bearish after the market moved sideways over the past weeks around $0.80 support. Last month, we saw XRP/USD retrace by over 60 percent from the last major swing high at $1.70. This means that bears are likely exhausted and we can expect Ripple to reverse over the next weeks.

Earlier this week, XRP tested the $0.80 support and established a resistance around $0.90. Therefore, Ripple is essentially trading in a sideways consolidation right now. Yesterday a slight movement below the $0.80 mark was seen, potentially indicating bears taking over again.

However, since only a slight breakout was set, we can still see XRP/USD moving to break the $0.90 mark over the next few days. Once Ripple sets a higher high, the overall market momentum would shift to being bullish again and move towards the current swing high of $1.70.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bullish for today as the market retraced over the last 24 hours and set a slightly lower low below the $0.80 mark, indicating bearish momentum still dominating. However, for today we expect a reversal to the upside as bulls look to regain some of the loss above the 40.80 mark.
