XRP was scarily bearish in the early hours today, but to the investors’ relief, the $0.2400 price level is still intact. The altcoin is following a price pattern perhaps, in which it declines in the first half and rises in the second half of the day. However, the recently formed bullish candlestick above the support line holds many hopes.

Is Ripple Price Stepping Up on its Own?
The ongoing bullish sentiment of the market is taking up the crypto community as well. Traders found it a bit surprising when XRP kept striking higher price spikes without showing a lot of dependence upon BTC. However, it is the fact that Bitcoin’s price trend spearheads the crypto market to a large extent.
