Ripple (XRP) is a digital asset built for global payments. At the time of writing this analysis, XRP/USD is trading around $0.39, which is a crucial level because, in the last year, it worked as a resistance and support for the short term. Between May-June, it was a support, and it broke the level around the last week of June. Until September, it worked as a resistance; after that, it crossed the resistance in the last two months and retraced back to the previous level.
After the FTX liquidity crunch, the XRP price has broken the previous support of $0.39. Below that, $0.3 worked as strong support in that uncertain time, but now it is recovering smoothly.
Will XRP plunge and face resistance again around $0.39?
Based on the technical indicators, we think the XRP price will consolidate within a range because Bollinger Band lacks volatility. MACD and RSI are neutral, suggesting XRP will not cross the $0.4 within the next few days. However, we think it is a good time to invest for the short term with a target of $0.5 because if it breaks the level, it will take less than two weeks to hit $0.5 again.
On the weekly chart, $0.3 is strong support in the last year, and XRP is forming higher highs on this level, suggesting a bullish momentum, but we think the price will consolidate or form higher highs. Candlesticks are forming in the lower Bollinger Bands that do not suggest an uptrend until the XRP price crosses the baseline around $0.45. MACD and RSI are also neutral.
Should you buy XRP for the long term?
We think it is the right time to invest with a longer horizon and stop loss around $0.25. However, investing for the short term with a shorter target of $0.5 for the next two months will generate a less risky return from your crypto investment.
