Ripple price action has seen another strong rejection for upside at the beginning of the week. After a swift rally to $0.43, XRP/USD quickly rejected lower and began to consolidate at the end of May.
From there, a quick drop to $0.39 followed, with further downside tested after a brief recovery. Therefore, XRP/USD has set another clear indication of bearish dominance.
Likely the slow current retracement will set another lower high, which, in turn, will lead to another wave lower. In case the $0.38 support break, we expect a lot more downside to follow next week.
Ripple price analysis: Conclusion
Ripple price analysis is bearish today as the market has failed to recover above $0.40 and looks to set another local lower high. Therefore, XRP/USD should soon break even lower and target the $0.38 next major support, which if broken, would open the way for a lot more downside over the next week.
