The overall market trades within a bearish price action development over the past weeks as a new higher low was set around the $0.50 mark. From there, XRP/USD started to retrace over the past weeks as bulls looked to regain some of the loss. 

Initially, the $0.70 mark acted as a resistance, however, after a slight retracement, Ripple pushed higher and set a higher high overnight. This price action development indicates that the market is ready to move higher later this week, with the next target around the $0.80 mark. From there, Ripple could start heading towards the previous all-time high and regain further losses.

Alternatively, if the further downside is seen later today, XRP/USD will likely head towards the previous support of around $0.50. From there, a lot more downside could be expected over the next weeks as the several-week bearish momentum continues.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion
