The overall market trades in a very strong bearish momentum over the past weeks after the previous swing high at $1.10 was reached at the beginning of June, and bulls failed to push Ripple price higher from there.

This XRP price action development has resulted in a loss of over 50 percent until support around $0.50. From there, we saw a slight rebound and a test of the $0.70 mark last week. 

After a slight consolidation over the weekends, XRP/USD started to rally once again and made a strong move high yesterday. Overnight bulls pushed the market even higher, and we saw a spike higher over the past hours. 

This has resulted in XRP/USD spiking higher over the past hours towards the $0.70 mark. If the market can break above, it would be a clear indication that the market wants to reverse the medium-term trend over the following week back to upside. 

Alternatively, if XRP fails to move above $0.70, we can expect a lot more downside over the remainder of this week, with the $0.50 support likely tested again. If the $0.50 mark breaks, the next support is located at $0.40 and would mean that the overall price action structure is still bearish.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bullish for the next hours as we expect bulls to try to break above the previous swing high resistance at $0.70. From there, we could see a lot more upside later this week as the several-week bearish momentum comes to an end.
