Ripple Price Analysis
Analyzing the hourly movement of XRP against USD, we see that the coin has been notably consolidating around $0.19 price zone. If most of the buyers fix the price above $0.195, it is likely to rally towards $0.20—the ultimate milestone. However, if the buyers are unable to sustain the fixed price around the said zone, it is likely to slide up to $0.19000. The 20-day Bollinger Bands laid on the chart exhibit a moderate opening, and we project a short-term price rally. As observed, the coin has hit the lower Bollinger Band to a major extent in the given time frame.
Having said that, the laid BTC chart simultaneously also shows a kind of similar movement as it corrects around $7,200. The major support is provided by the 49-day MA around $0.195, which happens to be the deciding price area (as mentioned).
The MACD of the coin is running below zero and holds a slight bullish crossover due to a positive intraday move from moving adjacent to overriding the signal line.
