XRP Price: Small Recovery Despite Dwindling Trading Volume



It would appear another major price reversal looms on the horizon for all major cryptocurrencies. After a very rough period over the past few days, most of the markets are on the road to recovery. The XRP price is leading the charge among top 10 currencies with a solid 2.54% increase. If this trend keeps up, things will certainly get pretty interesting moving forward.

XRP Price Trend Gives Hope

With another battering taking place across all cryptocurrency markets over the past few days, few people had expected any positive momentum to come out of it so soon. In the case of the XRP price, the going has been tough these past few days. This is on par with all other major cryptocurrencies, for rather obvious reasons.

Over the past seven days, the XRP price has dropped from $0.67 all the way to nearly $0.56. It is a pretty steep decline for this currency, although it is a direct result of the issues affecting Bitcoin and other major currencies. Even so, this most recent 2.54% XP price increase is well worth keeping an eye on, a sit may signal the beginning of an overall trend reversal. It is still too early to tell if that will be the case, though.

There is also a small increase in the XRP/BTC ratio over the past 24 hours. While a 1.12% change will not get anyone excited by any means, it is still pretty significant given the overall bearish pressure across all markets. It also shows the XRP price will only perform well when the Bitcoin value is going up. That same problem applies to all other currencies which are not Bitcoin, unfortunately.

Similar to most other currencies, Ripple’s native asset is struggling for trading volume. While XRP still notes $277.27m in trades over the past 24 hours, it is a lot lower compared to the $1bn and more people have seen in late 2017. For the time being, it seems highly unlikely the XRP trading volume will return to that level in the near future, although anything can happen in this crazy industry.

Despite the lower trading volume, Bitbank remains the leader in terms of XRP trading altogether. Its JPY pair is well ahead of Bithumb’s KRW market and OKEx’s USDT pair. To complete the five, we have HitBTC’s BTC market and Huobi’s USDT pair. A pretty decent mix of different trading markets, albeit only two fiat currencies in the top five. It will be interesting to see if that hinders the XRP price growth moving forward.

As is always the case when positive XRP price momentum occurs, it remains to be seen how long this new trend will last. For the time being, it is still too early to tell if any short-term growth can be expected, as the bearish pressure is still far too tangible at this point. Even so, if the XRP price can hit $0.6 and remain there for a while, things will continue to look up moving forward.

With every slide in the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin dominance increases. As a matter of fact, Bitcoin ball park control stands at 40 percent in the last seven days or so. That’s when bears took more than $30 billion despite supportive news from the SEC. Going forward, it could be worse for cryptocurrency portfolios because any break below $6,000 and we might see BTC valuation dropping 85 percent from its ATHs to $3,000. Let’s have a look at these charts: From the News It is attack after attack but in the case of BitGrail, ordinary account holders are set to suffer. A while back, this Italian exchange was hit by hackers who made away with $187 million worth of Nano coin. Even though the operations of the exchange took a hit, they resumed normal services a few days later. However, with formal announcement by the exchange that they were not in a position to reimburse user funds because they strongly believe hackers took advantage of Nano’s blockchain weakness, the Nano Foundation refutes these claims. We have temporarily disabled the BitGrail exchange pending further notice. — BitGrail Exchange (@BitGrail) May 2, 2018 This inevitably means the court is the only center of arbitration and now through the orders of a Florence Court, where bankruptcy petition for BitGrail is on-going, BitGrail’s digital assets are under state custody. We cannot make solid conclusion as the hearing continues. 3000 users of the #BitGrail fiasco have filed a petition asking an Italian court to declare the entities that operated the Bitgrail exchange bankrupt.https://t.co/x3wfor4qe1 — DeusExMachina (@d1rtydan) April 27, 2018 Then again the CEO of BitGrail has been clear that there is nothing since the exchange is following court orders. Regardless, it’s clear that the exchange is in a poor financial situation and probably won’t repay victims. As litigation continues in Italy, authorities in South Korea are planning on creating a special economic zone for blockchain companies in the city of Busan. “We need a place to concentrate on the cryptographic industry in Korea like the Crypto Valley in Switzerland” This comes at the back drop of the country’s initial steps of totally banning ICOs and fostering an environment that isn’t supportive for crypto traders in general. #SouthKorea intends to launch a #blockchain center in Busan city to incubate companies and projects working in the sector. Modeled as “#Crypto Beach,” the development is reportedly inspired by Switzerland’s “Crypto Valley” in Zug.#Bitcoin #btc $btc $bitcoin #ETH #EOS #ICX — Hitman (@Hitman637) June 17, 2018 Because of this, most blockchain start-ups in South Korea offer their ICOs in other countries. So, to prevent loss, the only approach is to thaw their regulatory grip by creating such blockchain friendly zones. Of course, all things constant, this is positive for Bitcoin in the long haul. Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analysis Weekly Chart Bitcoin Weekly Chart by Trading View Talking of Bitcoin hitting $3,000 may be pessimistic but here is the thing: Any break below $6,000 this week or within the next month and it would be catastrophic for coin holders in general. The web might even spread considering the positive correlation between Bitcoin prices and altcoins as we have been seeing in the last couple of days. Besides, even Trustory CEO thinks BTC prices are yet to bottom out and unwind the effect of Q3 and 4 2017 Tether pump. Price wise, it’s clear that BTC prices are trending around a key inflection point, a double bottom as the weekly chart shows. Overly, bears are in charge and we can draw a simple trend line between Q1 and recent Q2 highs to demonstrate that. In our previous projections, any up-thrust that lifts BTC prices above $8,000 will mean bulls are in charge and buying in line with the new shift of trend is practical. Conversely, it will be a journey back to $3,000 if sellers break below $6,000 as we have mentioned before. Daily Chart Bitcoin Daily Chart by Trading View Announcement by the SEC on June 14 was by all means timely. As we can see from the daily chart, that’s right at the main support line and initial bear targets at $6,500. Now, our trade plan based on these new events proposes buying but only when buyers push prices ideally past $7,000 and for conservatives at $7,800. Of course, with the past three candlesticks moving within tight trading ranges, patience would be an asset and would mean buying only once our trade conditions are met. On the reverse side where sellers drive below $6,000 and it would be a slide to $3,000.
