XRP Targets $0.3 As Number of XRP Whales Keep Increasing

XRP, the fourth largest digital currency by market capitalization, started the week with over 2% price appreciation. And it has been noted that the increase in buying pressure could push the Ripple’s digital currency out of the 2-month-long price correction.

XRP Is Poised To Print a Bullish Price Breakout

Over the past two months, XRP, the cryptocurrency designed for cross-border payments, has been enduring a huge price correction, relative to other cryptocurrencies in the market.

XRP saw its price dip by over 30% after dropping from a high of $0.33 in early August 2020, to as low as $0.22. At the time of filing this report, XRP is trading at $0.245801, with a 1.83% price upsurge in the last 24 hours.

Over the past two months, a descending parallel channel has been developing on XRP’s 1-day chart. A descending line rejected upward price action while a parallel trendline on the lower end of the channel kept falling prices at bay.

The most recent rejection from the channel’s upper boundary is a notable sign that the digital currency is liable to experience a continued price retracement. However, the recent bullish price action printed by XRP has made traders and investors remain positive.

A further increase in demand could enhance XRP’s price surging strength to surpass the overhead resistance and turn the 50-day and 100-day moving averages into support.

In this regard, XRP might experience over 20% price increase towards the next most significant resistance level, $0.3.

This type of bullish divergence between prices and the number of huge bag holders on the XRP network is a positive sign for investors and traders. If the buying pressure increases, there might soon be a price breakout.
