Ripple price action has seen bearish momentum this week. After a strong rally earlier in December, a strong swing high was set at $1.02 on the 23rd of December.

From there, bulls could not sustain the upswing, leading to a sharp drop lower to $0.90 a day later. Consolidation followed over the last weekend, with a slight test of upside to $0.95, where rejection for upside was seen.

Over the following days, the Ripple price action moved lower with strong momentum again. This time, the $0.81 mark offered support, leading to a reaction higher yesterday to $0.85. Since XRP/USD has failed to move any higher, we expect another drop to follow over the next days.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bearish today as we expect another push follow later after a quick spike to retest the $0.85 resistance. Likely XRP/USD will continue towards the $0.81 support next.
