Ripple price action momentum has seen a sharp reversal over the past few days. After retesting $0.51 support, XRP/USD started trading higher until the $0.68 mark was reached on Monday. What followed was a retracement to $0.62 previous low, where ETH consolidated overnight.

Earlier today, Ethereum price started to rapidly advance until a 15 percent spike higher led to the $0.73 resistance level. Around the $0.73 resistance, any further upside was heavily rejected over the past hours, indicating that we will likely see XRP/USD reverse to the downside later today.

The first target to look out for is located around the $0.68 previous local high. However, when considering how fast the market has advanced over the last few days, we can expect a much deeper retracement towards the previous major support area, around $0.51.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow over the next few days as previous major resistance was rapidly tested over the last hours. Since further upside gets rejected as of now, we expect XRP/USD to reverse and start heading towards the $0.51 previous major swing low later this week.
