Ripple (XRP) Price Near $1.59; Heads Up For the 3rd Day In A Row

The Hourly View for XRP

Last Updated May 3, 2021, 02:017 GMT

At the time of this writing, Ripple’s price is down $-0.01 (-0.56%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as Ripple has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trader with a preference for rangebound markets, you may wish to note that there isn’t a clear trend on the 20, 50 and 100 hour timeframes. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
