The 4-hour Ripple price chart shows us that XRP had pushed up significantly on the 23rd, rising to $1.00 and then pushing marginally to $1.01. However, after reaching this level, the price fell back, dropping to $0.94 and slipping back below the 20-bar SMA. The price continued to drop from this level, falling to $0.91 on the 25th. At this level, the 200-bar SMA came into play as support, and XRP rose to $0.92 and then dropped to $0.90, where the 50-bar SMA acted as support. As a result, the price pushed back from this level, rising to $0.92 and moving above the 20-bar SMA. However, the price fell back from this level, dropping below all three SMAs and moving to its current level of $0.85.

We can see that the Parabolic SAR and MACD are both currently bearish, but if the price continues to push up, we could see them flip to bullish.

Ripple Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ripple price chart, we see that XRP has made a marginal recovery during the current session. If buyers are able to retain the current session, we could see XRP move above the 20-day SMA at $0.86.
