XRP Price Prediction: Can XRP Finally Rise?

XRP price saw some rough treatment from the crypto market in 2019 so far, but there are indications that things might change for the third largest coin by market cap.

In the first days of January, XRP fluctuated between a support level at $0.3500 and a resistance at $0.375. However, come January 10th, the coin got caught up in the bear market that pushed its price further down. While the support level at $0.325 managed to stop its drop temporarily, the drop still continued in the final days of January, forcing XRP to drop all the way down to the support level at $0.30.

The coin even broke this support twice in the first half of February, but it also attempted to grow several times. Its first surge was stopped by a support-turned-resistance at $0.325, while the second growth was cut short by a resistance at $0.31. In mid-February, XRP remained stuck between this resistance and its major support at $0.30, which finally changed with the bull run on February 18th.

The bull run allowed XRP price to easily breach the resistance at $0.31, and it was only stopped by the largest resistance at $0.325. Even so, the coin remained close to this upper level for quite a while, before it gradually dropped to the newly created support at $0.31.

The lack of major bearish activity throughout March allowed the coin to use this level as its base resistance, while the new strongest support formed itself at $0.32. In fact, XRP fluctuated between these two levels for nearly the entire March 2019.

Then, about a week ago, on March 23rd, the coin approached its support, which is when the bearish market struck again, albeit only for a little while. Still, the unexpected drop that followed forced the coin to break this support and drop all the way down to the former one, at $0.30.

XRP sees a sudden spike up

The coin did not remain in the depths for long, but it did stay down for long enough for its support at $0.31 to turn into a strong resistance once again. This is the level that XRP price remained very close to for the entire past week, and it finally managed to break it earlier today, March 30.

$0.315 currently acts as a support level, and XRP price even managed to reach a minor resistance at $0.320. The coin then suffered a minor correction, but it currently sees growth once again. At the time of writing, XRP price sits at $0.319812, after a 3.91% growth in the past 24 hours.

If the coin continues growing, it is possible that it might break this resistance, and go for a higher mark. Depending on the market behavior, XRP is likely to reach the $0.32 mark in the following hours, and if the resistance breaks, it will possibly become a new major support. The crypto market currently sees another of its minor bull runs, which were quite frequent in the second half of February and most of March.

However, if the resistance holds, XRP is likely to continue fluctuating between $0.315 and $0.32 for the foreseeable future. The lack of strength and the occasional bearish wave seem to be its largest problems at the moment, but if the growth continues, then the market might finally shake off even these last remnants of the year-long crypto winter.

Whatever happens, it appears that many have decided that this is a perfect time to buy XRP, as the coin’s trading volume in the past 24 hours sits well above $1 billion, while its current market cap managed to exceed $13.3 billion.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
