Ripple (XRP) Closes Prior Hour Up 0.12%; Nears 20 Day Moving Average, Breaks Above 20 Day Average

The Hourly View for XRP

Last Updated September 30, 2020, 01:037 GMT

At the time of this writing, XRP’s price is up $0 (0.12%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as XRP has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. 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.

  • From Kevin_Cage_:

    If you are an $XRP Holder & honestly believe it will never appreciate in price because ‘they will never ramp up volume or txn size’, please do us all a favor & sell your XRP. We’ll be happy to buy it up at a discount. XRP does not care what you believe lol#NotFinancialAdvice

  • From sentosumosaba:

    Christine was never talking about XRP, it was all about the CBDC. Miguel failed at building XRP liquidity so ended up working for an app Co. owned by a multi-level marketing company, and Zagone just joined a company that has never been a supporter of Ripple. “Onward”

  • From EricCobaltXrp:

    I’ve been in the space for 2 and a half years. Five weeks ago I met a sweet girl whom became the 6th person I got in #XRP. Within a couple of weeks she in turn got 3 people to invest in $XRP. Either she’s got out of this world sales skills or people are wanting change.
