XRP/BTC, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

XRP’s price moved above the 0.000115 BTC level in active trading this morning, triggering a buy signal with a stop below the prior swing low below 0.0001. The move comes after a more than one-month-long consolidation, which brought the pair down by more than 60%. The primary target for the move is at 0.000145 and at 0.00016, and a re-test of the prior high at 0.00024 is also in the cards in the coming weeks. Ripple trades in a volatile fashion during its moves, so trading sizes should be controlled, as 20-30% daily moves are not uncommon for the currency.

Longer term positions could also be opened here with a stop under the key 0.00009 level, that served as a base in the recent consolidation. The MACD produced a buy signal today after an extended period of neutral readings. Ripple is also breaking out from a long-term consolidation pattern against the Dollar, moving above the 0.30 level, but it faces strong resistance at 0.32, and the BTC pair looks more promising.

    Nice recommendation, but when this post was published XRP was already at $0,326. So how should we take this trading advice?

      The trade is still on, I think that the small differences between the exchanges (I trade the XPR/Tether USD pair) don’t change the setup. The Poloniex chart was just a few minutes old at publishing. Let me know which exchange you trade and I can help with the exact levels.

    Can you elaborate how the BTC pair can be more promising unless you are implying BTC will be pulling back vs the dollar? “but it faces strong resistance at 0.32, and the BTC pair looks more promising.” Otherwisee, If the .32 resistance stops the XRP/Dollar Pair it will also stop the XRP/BTC Pair, no?

      Hi awgregory, thanks for the question. Yes, I expect Bitcoin to underperform XRP, and the BTC-pair to rise even if Bitcoin pulls back. That’s why I wrote it’s more promising.

        What would happen in terms of dollars in that scenario?

    What just happened?! the massive price drop… Is it possible for the XRP price to be “manipulated” ?
    Thanks

    This trade is still showing as active, but I’m pretty sure it stopped out. Also, the current price showing on the recommendations page is off by an order of magnitude.

      Hello Chris, yes the trade is below the suggested stop, but we kept it ob because Ripple tends to explode suddenly and it makes sense to keep the position. For transparency I didn’t change the stop (admitting that the timing was off). Sorry for the typo, it’s corrected.
