Ripple is Monstrously Expensive after Explosive 2-Day 31% XRP Rally

By CCN: World’s third largest cryptocurrency Ripple (XRP) has appreciated up to 31-percent against the US dollar in just two days.

The XRP-to-dollar exchange rate Tuesday established an intraday high towards $0.405, up 25.05-percent since the market open on Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange. The pair dropped as much as 5.05-percent ahead of the European session to neutralize its overbought sentiments, finding interim support at $0.384-level.



The sentiment was the same across the rest of the cryptocurrency index, with almost all the leading cryptocurrency posting surplus intraday gains. Bitcoin (BTC), for instance, extended its rally action to establish a new 2019 peak towards $8,836.19. Ethereum, EOS, and Bitcoin Cash too recorded double-digit percentage gains on a 24-hour adjusted timeframe.

The cryptocurrencies’ breakout action further came with a rise in trading volume, confirming a strong bullish bias across the market. Exchanges trading XRP-enabled pairs noted $3.69 billion worth of buying and selling activity. Meanwhile, data on, which excludes manipulated volume statistics, showed $127 million value of trades in the last 24 hours.

At the time of this writing, XRP was hinting to extend its upside momentum, consolidating sideways while trading at $0.385.

Splash of Great Fundamentals

Ripple gains owed to a confluence of positive fundamentals in both inside and outside the cryptocurrency market. The rise of trade tensions between the US and China offered a soft launching pad to haven assets like bitcoin. The sentiment, as it appears, rippled across the rest of the cryptocurrency market, including the XRP.

The asset found additional fundamental support from Boerse Stuttgart. Germany’s second-largest stock exchange on Monday launched two exchange-traded notes for XRP and Litecoin’s LTC each. As if that was not enough, Boston-based asset management company, Fidelity Investments, expressed the possibility of offering XRP trading services to its institutional clients.

The reports improved buying sentiments in the XRP market, at least in the last two days. They also served as primary factors to drive the asset’s upside run further, making it attractive for investors to build their XRP positions.

Technically Overbought

The XRP’s daily Relative Strength Index was now above 70, indicating the asset’s overbought sentiment. While that didn’t impact XRP’s bullish bias in near-term, it indeed hinted that a downside correction wave was underway. As of now, XRP has located interim support near $0.384. A break below it could have the asset test its 200-period moving average.

The other way, extended upside momentum could push XRP towards $0.42 level, an interim upside target.
