XRP/USD 4-hour chart: XRP ready to retrace again?
On the 4-hour chart, we can see consolidation formed since late yesterday, indicating that Ripple is due to retrace later in the weekend.
Ripple price action saw a strong rally at the beginning of the week. From the last major swing low around $0.38, XRP/USD quickly gained over 12 percent, with resistance found around $0.43.
From there, consolidation followed on Tuesday, eventually leading to a retrace of previous gains. Support was found at $0.39, indicating a strong higher low set, which was a very bullish sign for the overall market structure.
However, much upside did not follow at the following push higher ending at $0.41. Yesterday, Ripple price pivoted and rapidly declined to further lows, setting a lower local low at $0.385.
Since then, consolidation has followed in a narrow range, indicating a reversal. Likely XRP/USD will look to set another lower local high before the $0.38 major support is tested early next week. However, if the local high at $0.41, is broken, we could expect another strong wave to the upside later in June.
Ripple price analysis: Conclusion
Ripple price analysis is bullish today as we have seen a strong push lower late yesterday end with clear respect of support at $0.385. Therefore, XRP/USD should see another push higher over the next 24 hours, potentially to set another lower local high.
