Ripple (XRP) Stellar (XLM) Price Analysis – Exhaustion Awaits

Published

Ripple

Today, we’re going to take a close look at two charts that bear some clear resemblance within the spectrum of large market Coins in the crypto complex right now.

Both Ripple (XRP) and Stellar (XLM) are in wide-swinging trading ranges, or consolidative patterns, in the wake of the energetic mania style bull market that we saw to close out 2017. And both of them may be said to be in relatively bearish postures at present, however, with the potential to inflect and thereby exemplify and highlight what could be interpreted as powerful accumulation bids by strong hands setting the terms of support at key levels.

The most important feature that would mark such a shift would first be signaled by an exhaustion of the selling force that has defined this bearish trend for most of this year to date.

Ripple (XRP)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.45184
  • Low: $0.44020
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.47
  • Hourly MACD: Steady Downside Momentum

Ripple (XRP) has established clear and important support around the $0.45 level. This level was established as a level of interest earlier this year when the coin made its lows toward the end of March and the beginning of April. We have now begun to test that level and slightly break underneath it, as we formulate the action for June and July.

This is a critical stage for XRP. As the pattern evolves, one no doubt can see the potential for something similar to a descending triangle pattern underway at a relatively significant time frame.

Under most circumstances, such a pattern has bearish implications. However, it can also be an exceedingly bullish pattern if the attempt to follow through on the downside is denied, thereby highlighting the importance of the level for deep-pocketed bulls who have begun to move in and accumulate this coin.

While we don’t yet see the signals that would differentiate these outcomes in the case of XRP, we do know that recent lows have been exemplified by oversold readings on a number of different important technical oscillators, suggesting that downside momentum has at the very least stalled out.

Selling pressure may well resume, but the region on the XRP chart defining the recent lows toward the end of June should be marked out with a close eye as it can define a reasonable risk point for speculative entries in Ripple (XRP) right now.

Stellar (XLM)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.196650
  • Low: $0.183387
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.215
  • Hourly MACD: Oversold on Sharp Momentum

When we look closely at the Stellar (XLM) chart, we see something quite similar to the picture we find in many different coin charts at present: an important low toward the end of the first fiscal quarter that is being retested in recent action.

This process can be viewed a couple of different ways. From one point of view, it’s precisely what you may expect as part of the procession of a bear market. Levels get established, and then they get broken.

But that’s exactly where this type of chart becomes very interesting.

It is, in fact, an important technical testing ground. One assumes that the level being tested represents a spot on the chart – a price level – where we previously saw a large supportive bid enter the complex has a whole, and in Stellar (XLM), in particular.

And that’s where the testing process bears itself out as such an important feature in the construction of a technical chart pattern: if we see XLM attempt to break below that level and effectively fail at that breakdown, then we may, in fact, be seeing an important low come into place that offers a sound entry point for aspiring bulls to get involved with defined risk.

DGB Price Prediction For 2018 and Beyond

DGB price prediction
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

With the crypto market being constantly bearish throughout this year, a lot of investors are having second thoughts about buying additional coins. While some large cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum can be considered safe investments, smaller coins like Digibyte (DGB) often receive a lot of doubt. This is why the DGB price prediction is necessary so that the investors can know what to expect.

DGB Price Prediction

DGB has had its ups and downs throughout this year, and at some point, it even went up by 70%. However, the constant bear market affected it just as much as numerous other cryptos. This has brought its value down to its current $0.025378 per coin. Some optimistic predictions from earlier dates saw the coin reaching as high a price as $9.20 by the year’s end. However, as we approach the date, it seems less and less likely that this DGB price prediction will come true.

The coin is generally seen as a profitable investment. As it is always the case with cryptocurrencies, they should be bought when their prices are down, so that a profit could be made when they spike up once more. Digibyte is no different, but it should be noted that investing in this coin means having patience. DGB is not among the coins that will make you rich overnight, and instead, it should be seen as a long-term investment.

Even though 2018 has been as…

Why ZCash (ZEC) Is Heading to $10k

Back in mid-May, the Winklevoss Twins made the headlines for embracing ZCash (ZEC) as one of its major digital assets on their groundbreaking Gemini exchange. When the announcement was made, ZEC rallied in the market by showing a 45% increment in value. The coin made it to $357 in a matter of hours.

Further assessing the currently available digital assets on the Gemini platform, we find that the exchange currently has USD pairings for only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum and ZEC. There is also additional pairings of ETH/BTC, ZEC/BTC and ZEC/ETH with plans to onboard Litecoin in the coming days.

Another thing to note is that the exchange also provides custodial services for institutional investors thus giving ZEC the much-needed exposure to the firms on Wall Street. Custodial services provide a guarantee that all digital assets on the platform are stored by a licensed entity thus extinguishing any cybersecurity concerns. For an entity to be licensed in New York for custodial services, the proper due diligence and research have been done.

Another thing that makes the Gemini exchange attractive and appealing to institutional investors, is that all USD deposits are insured by the FDIC. The latter entity is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation that provides insurance for USD deposits in American banks. This means that once again, the funds of individual and institutional investors are safe and insured, further making…

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?

Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…
