XRP Price Analysis
With the rest of the market, XRP Price has had a rough few days. With the recent bullish moves in the crypto market, it appears that XRP has returned to the area of resistance it has been in for the past month.
The price of XRP is currently $0.6249, having risen to an intraday high of $0.63 before retreating. The first major barrier is at $0.6769, which if broken opens the doors to $0.72 and $0.7648.
On the other hand, at $0.61, XRP needs significant support. If the bears gain control, the first support level is $0.58, which is followed by $0.54 and $0.50.
Hinman’s deposition, which takes place on July 27, is eagerly anticipated since it has the potential to function as a significant catalyst for the XRP price. Prepare for a big increase in the price of XRP if all goes Ripple’s way.
