Ripple continued to decline over the past week after a failure to set further highs at the beginning of July. A clear lower high was set on the 5th of July, with a strong lower low set on the 8th of July after some consolidation.

From there, XRP/USD quickly reached $0.60 support and retested the $0.65 previous lows as a resistance level. This price action development led XRP towards further downside over the next few days, with the $0.60 support broken yesterday.

What followed was a slight rally overnight to the $0.60 mark as bears prepare for another push lower early next week. We predict XRP/USD will attempt to reach the $0.50 mark over the following days, where we could see indecision for Ripple on where to move next.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bearish for the next 24 hours as the market has retraced overnight and bears prepare for another move lower along the several-week bearish downswing. Therefore, we expect XRP/USD to push lower later today and target the $0.50 support area early next week.
