Ripple (XRP): Price, Chart and Technical Analysis
- Ripple technology adopted by major US financial institution.
- XRP rally changes the technical outlook.
Ripple (XRP) Near-Term Outlook Looks Bullish
The recent surge in buying interest in the third-largest cryptocurrency has pushed Ripple to a new two-month high and back through old resistance levels. The heavy buying was sparked by news that a divison of PNC Financial Services will use Ripple technology, xCurrent, to process international payments. At this time XRP will not be used but Ripple hope that by banks adopting the xCurrent technology then XRP will be eventually used as a means of payment.
This week’s rally from $0.275 to $0.480 has broken the negtive chart outlook and taken out old areas of resistance. The pattern of lower lows and lower highs has also been fragmented and should underpin this latest move higher. On the four hour chart XRP now trades above all three moving averages – a bullish set-up – although care should be taken with the RSI indicator currently in overbought territory. The next level of resistance is between $0.52 and $0.55
