From the look of things, it looks like things are back to horizontal trends not only for Ripple (XRP) but the whole cryptocurrency markets as very little progress has been witnessed over the past 24-hours. As it was this time yesterday, the total market cap is still hovering around the over 210 billion US dollars region, showing little or no signs of bouncing back to previous levels marking a lazy day in the cryptocurrency market.
Following its last Thursday dump of about 300 US dollars, Bitcoin has remained on a flat line fighting not to depreciate any further than that. Earlier this week, the number one ranked cryptocurrency undervalued to exchange at 6,300 US dollars and is now trading slightly above that level.
According to some cryptocurrency analysts, Bitcoin seems to be making a symmetrical triangle formation regarding its price trends, something that could lead to its breakout from the consolidation. In regards to its trade volumes, the number one digital currency has fallen back after the recent upward price surge that has seen trade volumes stabilize at about 4 billion US dollars. In regards to Ethereum, the digital coin is still week but is holding to its impressive 210 US dollar price tag currently, recording no change from yesterday.
Ripple (XRP) Making Headlines with Bullish Movements
Out of the many virtual currencies available in the crypto market, Ripple (XRP) is one of the few digital currencies that has been following up with bullish movement in recent time.
According to some cryptocurrency analysts, one of the reasons behind Ripple’s (XRP)’s impressive performance in the market is the recent positive publicity that RippleNet has been enjoying. RippleNet recently boarded Moneynetint to its long list of partners and users. While XRP as a digital currency does not have anything to do with RippleNet, XRP prices usually perform positively on positive reviews and news touching the Ripple Network.
During the last spike in September, XRP formed a bearish divergence – thanks to its formation of a series of lower lows. This latest price surge is coming close to breaking the series of lower lows that could have essentially changed the entire market structure. On Tuesday, Ripple prices appreciated by over 3 percent maintaining its upward momentum that was seen on Monday.
It has been an irregular past few sessions, as the crypto market continues to search for a stable, committed direction.
As from the last week of September, XRP/USD price action has been forming a bullish flag pattern that was instigated by the price surge that made way for a bull run. During Monday’s session, a breach from that flag was recorded, leaving the door open to a further upward trend.
Technically, following the recent breach from the pattern mentioned above, the current market is susceptible to XRP/USD further buying pressure. All eyes are on the potential of the bullish upper wick that has been expected to be filled from 15th October.

Building Your Nest Egg Brick By Brick: Are Micro-Investments Here to Stay?
No matter what our goals are, sometimes just getting started can be the most difficult part of building our savings up. When it comes to investing, many of us are wary of parting with our money to generate more financial security in the future. But what if you can build significant savings without even noticing?
That’s the aim of the micro-investing apps that have come to dominate online stores across Android and iOS. Today, more fintech startups are working on delivering refined solutions that encourage minuscule investments at a more frequent rate.
Micro-Investing apps will look to make saving more accessible to young people – many of whom in the UK have little-to-no money tucked away for a rainy day.
However, the prevalence of money-saving technology and the disruptive chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to have prompted a widespread increase in households saving more of their disposable income:
With micro-investing platforms playing a role in bringing UK household savings back up to five-year highs, is it fair to say that little-by-little investing is here to stay? Let’s take a look at how micro-investment platforms could revolutionise how we manage our finances:
What is Micro-Investing
Micro-investing, or sparse change investing, is a relatively new development in fintech. It effectively enables users to put away small amounts of money towards their long, or short, term goals. The idea…
