Ripple price action has seen a steady decline over the last week, with slightly lower highs set. The weekly low was found at $0.76, while the $0.85 currently acts as the local resistance.

After failing to move any lower on Friday, XRP/USD set a slightly higher low before moving towards the previous high at $0.84. Therefore, the market currently trades in an increasingly tighter consolidation range.

Unless the Ripple price action can break higher, we expect the current consolidation to continue with another retest of downside. Break lower is unlikely as the market has seen enough of selling over the past weeks, likely meaning that bears are finally exhausted.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bearish today as we saw a slow advance over the last 24 hours lead to the $0.85 previous resistance. Likely XRP/USD will reverse below the resistance and continue trading sideways around the weekly range.
