Ripple price prediction: Fall ahead?
Looking at the chart below, we can observe that the XRP price has approached the end of a triangle pattern that has formed above a broadening wedge.
The price is held above the upper trend line of the broadening wedge, along with the 100-Day Exponential Moving Average. The price turned bullish and moved above this channel that can be seen on the chart above, the pattern formed early in Q1 2020. The price is now expected to move towards the bottom of the triangle pattern and then see a bounce-off, which will then allow the cryptocurrency to escape the triangle pattern and rise across the $0.8 mark.
What to expect from the XRP price?
XRP is trading under a high descending resistance and the analyst believes that the altcoin looks bearish right now.
The trade volume has seen many hits on the 2h time frame and the price has moved downwards after spiking towards the $0.8 mark in the last week of November. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has also come down from the overbought region. Per the analyst’s chart, the price should move towards the bottom and confirm support until it can break above the falling trend line.
What’s next for Ripple?
A 3-year long ascending channel was highlighted by the Trading View analyst GJM Real Estate. We can see that the cryptocurrency has bottomed in the up-channel.
Looking at this chart, 2021 looks promising for the XRPUSD trading pair. If Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market continue to grow like they have recently, the prices for the XRPUSD pair should see newer highs in the up-channel, especially after a long period of consolidation near the bottom of the parallel ascending channel.

This is a bearish indicator for the cryptocurrency.
