Ripple price prediction: What’s next?
The Trading View analyst Strictly believes that the cryptocurrency is in a huge ascending channel and the coin currently trades near the bottom of the main channel. The analyst used a weekly Ichimoku cloud to show that the XRP price might rise on this Ripple price prediction’s relative time frame.
Per the analyst, once the weekly candle ends, the cryptocurrency should stay inside the Ichimoku cloud getting support from the bottom of the main channel at around $0.23 levels. The Ripple price prediction shows that the cryptocurrency will break through the specific plateau highlighted (green) by the crypto analyst. This plateau is important for the stablecoin as it opens the door to moving higher for the coin. However, if the price drops below this key trend line, it could get ugly for the XRP price. But if it manages to break towards the upside and moves above the plateau on the weekly time frame, the next target lies above the $0.55 range.
