A lot of XRP community members have received official invites from Ripple, the US-based blockchain tech, to the well-publicized Swell 2019. The euphoria of the special invitation displayed by the discreetly chosen invitees flooded the Crypto Twitter about two days ago.
Swell 2019 is scheduled to hold in Singapore. As report has it, the event will commence on Thursday 8th November to Friday 9th November 2019.
The importance of this trade gathering and impacts it left on the price of Ripple’s digital token XRP during and after the event drew attention to the need of going down the memory lane.
What Historical Data Says about Swell
In predicting the price of any valuable commodity, the history of such cannot be thrown underfoot. There are times when past price action repeats itself closely, relatively or accurately.
That brings us to considering the historical data of Ripple’s XRP price actions, especially the reaction of the price of the digital currency during and after the two most recent Swell conducted. Swell 2017 and 2018 precisely.
According to the data made available by Galaxy on Twitter, two weeks before the Swell had been favorable, with noteworthy impact on the price of the digital token XRP.
Going by the information he provided, XRP experienced a significant price upsurge of over 115% in 2 weeks before Swell 2017.
Likewise in 2018, the third-largest digital currency by market cap, XRP reacted positively prior to the popular event with a price increase of over 220%.
However, after the two consecutive events, there were price retracements. In 2017, XRP price dropped by 43% after the event, while the price of the digital currency also dropped by 51% in 2018 as soon as the event was concluded.
He wrote, “The trade of the year is coming once again on XRP Long 2 weeks before Swell, and short when the event is over. Price increase before event (USD) +115% (2017) +220% (2018) Price decrease after event (USD) -43% (2017) -51% (2018) Time to see what this year brings”

What this upcoming one would bring is still a subject of speculation in the crypto space, especially within the XRP community. Howbeit, if history could repeat itself, the gains prior to the event would out place the price deficits after it.
