XRP Gains 30 Per Cent Surge But Might Drop Again

476

XRP has surged dramatically higher in the past day. The coin is up 30% against the U.S. dollar in the past 24 hours, making it the top-performing crypto asset in the top 100 by market capitalization. That’s no joke, XRP, a coin that has almost continually been bleeding out since the 2018 highs, has gained 30% in a single day.

As of this article’s writing, the coin is trading at $0.45, its highest price in many months. Analysts think the cryptocurrency could move even higher in the days ahead as technical trends align in the coin’s favor.

Analysts think the cryptocurrency could move even higher in the hours and days ahead.

Joe McCann, an engineer at Microsoft and a prominent crypto-asset analyst, recently shared to his Telegram channel that XRP just confirmed a bullish MACD crossover. The MACD, or Moving Average Convergence Divergence, is a popular technical indicator that attempts to show an asset’s trend.

He thinks this is a sign the coin could move even higher in the new future. He notably did not explain on which time frame did the MACD cross positively for.

Analysts think that XRP could move even higher as it breaks out of macro downtrends, which had compressed the cryptocurrency’s price action over a number of years.

How high XRP will rally in the near term remains to be seen. Though, many are confident that a followthrough will take place as the cryptocurrency moves up 40% in a single trading session.
