Ripple Price Intraday Analysis: XRP/USD Near September High with 23% Leap

Ripple price


Ripple price on Tuesday appreciated 23 percent against the US Dollar owing to strong fundamental factors.

The XRP/USD has risen from its intraday low near 0.26699-fiat to retest its September 5’s lower high near 0.32994-fiat. The pair yawned through the early Asian trading session, consolidating sideways within a stiff range. The upside momentum began building only when the European markets woke up. And, quite abnormally, XRP/USD jumped violently during the mid-session, forming one higher high after another. And as the US session comes into play, the pair has already established a new intraday high near 0.32859.

The Ripple fundamentals are too strong to ignore. However, they have delivered a rally that is too unstable. There could be a possible sell-off if those with long positions towards near-term upside targets start exit on high intraday profits. Nevertheless, in long-term, Ripple has psychologically established itself as a major blockchain giant which could assist the value of XRP tokens.

XRP/USD Technical Analysis – Inverse H&S Formation

The abnormal rally has already done a breakout action on the long-term descending triangle, substantially switching the bias from bear to bull within a matter of hours. XRP/USD is now on the verge of completing an inverse head and shoulder pattern, with its head at 0.225349-fiat and neckline towards 0.33708-fiat. There is an absolute possibility of neckline to shift further north, should the bull action continues to break key resistance levels. Our best bullish guess is XRP/USD retesting 0.35720-fiat, August 28’s peak level, in medium-term.

The pair is already above its 50H, 100H, and 200H SMA while the RSI has entered its overbought region. The Stochastic indicator, though bullish, has slowed down near the overbought borderline. This could mean a potential reversal, which is further visible in the RSI indicator.

Ripple Labs, the company behind the XRP token, gained a new member for its flagship blockchain network in The National Commercial Bank. Saudi Arabia’s first established bank will use RippleNet, Ripple’s enterprise blockchain network, to do instant international payments. The partnership paves way for Ripple Labs to establish its market in Saudi Arabia, a country of one of the largest migrant workers population. And, with the National Commerical Bank, the blockchain company expects to access its 5 million users for a potential XRP adoption.

XRP/USD Intraday Analysis

We will initially be expecting a run towards 0.33708-fiat before XRP/USD decides on whether it wants to attempt a breakout or a pullback action. That said, we are long on 0.33708-fiat as far as our intrarange strategy is concerned. A breakout would have us put a long position towards 0.35386-fiat, the 100% Fibonacci level of the last swing from 0.35386-high to 0.25349-low. In this position, a stop loss circa 4-pips below the entry point should minimize our losses in case a dumping action appears.

A pullback will have us switch back to intrarange, which would mean placing a short towards the interim support. It is near 0.32326-fiat for today.

An extended breakdown action, in the meantime, will have us switch to a wait-and-watch approach. It could potentially be a dump, and we would avoid catching a falling knife.

Trade safely!

Nano Price Uptrend Remains Intact as Value Surpasses $2.1

Some interesting momentum is brewing for the Nano altcoin right now. Although it is still too early to speak of a proper market reversal, the current development shows there is some life left in the altcoin department. Despite a solid increase in the BTC and USD ratio, Nano’s price remains above $2 with relative ease. Nano Price Continues its Uptrend It is an interesting weekend for all cryptocurrencies, even though the gains across the board are pretty slim, all things considered. As long as Bitcoin doesn’t show any real bullish or bearish pressure in the near future, causing altcoins to note some small gains or losses in the process. For Nano, things are heading in the right direction right now, although the momentum still remains somewhat shaky first and foremost. Over the past 24 hours, the nano price has risen by roughly 4% in the USD department. That means the altcoin sustains its value of $2 with ease, and has even reached a new level of $2.1. That is a pretty promising trend for altcoin speculators, even though it is not necessarily sufficient to keep things moving in this direction for the foreseeable future. The 3% gain over Bitcoin, on the other hand, is a bit more promising. Unfortunately for Nano, all of the discussions across social media have something to do with price speculation right now. Considering how this is a sign there isn’t anything spectacular happening to Nano right now, one has to wonder how it impacts the overall market momentum. K Sizzle thinks Bitcoin’s price will push to $7,000 and drag altcoins with it. Shortly after, a retrace will kick in, which is rather common. Seems like a plausible route to 7k mark before a retrace #btc #vet #qsp #omg #xvg #nano #ada #XLM #tpay #eca pic.twitter.com/fRSDGtxEUu — K Sizzle (@KSizzle021) October 21, 2018 Some traders are convinced the Nano price will remain under pressure from people looking to push the value below $2 once again. Whether or not that will effectively happen in the near future, is a different matter altogether. For now, the momentum looks positive, but this trend will effectively lead to a small correction sooner or later. NANO stays under pressure, watch key resistance by trader CryptalDash published October 05, 2018 #bitcoin #nano #nanobtc #btc #cryptocurrency #nanocoin https://t.co/SPp354Nhvy pic.twitter.com/Ofo6XkJuwY — BitcoinAgile (@bitcoinagile) October 21, 2018 Last but not least, Torjus Gaaren is looking for further Nano price gains in the near future. Although the current momentum seems to warrant cautious optimism first and foremost, one has to keep in mind no financial market can continue to rise indefinitely. In the case of Nano, this trend remains in place, although its week trading volume can easily trigger a big sell-off in the future. #NANO very good trade with clear target if it breaks out upwards. Trade described in chart. pic.twitter.com/7hcK6woxMz — Torjus Gaaren (@TGaaren) October 20, 2018 With all of these trends in place, it will be interesting to see what the future will hold for Nano. It is still one of the most resilient altcoins on the market, and its push into Venezuela will undoubtedly continue to generate a fair bit of attention. Altcoins are in a good place right now, which might very well hint at a continual uptrend in the future. The post Nano Price Uptrend Remains Intact as Value Surpasses $2.1 appeared first on NullTX.
