Ripple price prediction: Ripple rejects upside at $0.46, set to move lower

XRP/USD opened at $0.439 today after several bearish daily closes, which led Ripple price from the $0.50 resistance to a retest of support around the $0.43-$0.44 area. After the pullback, XRP/USD quickly bounced back and reached towards the previous local high at $0.465.

XRP/USD 4-hour chart – Ripple forming bearish pin bar of rejection

On the 4-hour chart, we can see Ripple price rejecting further upside after bullish momentum earlier today. Therefore, we are likely to see Ripple retrace lower again over the next hours.

Overall, the market has calmed down after severe volatility was seen the previous month. After Ripple slowly traded towards the $0.40 mark at the end of February, support was found, and a new medium-term swing low was set.

What followed was a prolonged first week in March, during which XRP slowly traded higher and peaked just under the $0.50 mark. After a brief retest of this area at the beginning of this week, Ripple started moving lower again as it looked to retrace some of the previous gains.

Previous support around $0.445 was tested and broken with a solid momentum yesterday. However, after retracing further towards 61.8 Fibonacci level, Ripple found buyers once more. The further downside was quickly rejected and pushed the price of Ripple higher again. 

Since Ripple also has rejected further upside during the past hours, we can expect Ripple to form an increasingly tighter trading range with a $0.445 level being the central zone where the price is drawn to.

Until a clear higher high or low is set, a medium-term trend is hard to predict. When considering that the current price structure around $0.445, we could assume that it is a higher swing low, and Ripple should start to move higher next week.

For now, Ripple will likely head towards the downside again as it looks to retest the previous low after failing to move higher earlier today.

Ripple Price Prediction: Conclusion

Ripple price prediction for today is bearish as the price structure of XRP/USD over the past hours indicates rejection for further upside. We are likely to see a bearish pin-bar formed on the current 4-hour candle, signaling traders to push the market lower again. 

Therefore, the best option, for now, is to wait for further price action development. While waiting, see our latest long-term guide on Bitcoin for the upcoming years, as well as our article on how to mine Ripple in 2021.
