Ripple Price Prediction: Ripple Price May Break to the Downside
Looking at the daily chart, if the Ripple price fails to climb above the upper boundary of the channel, there could be a bearish reaction. At the moment, the initial support is near $1.20. Therefore, if there is a downside break below this level, the Ripple price could test at $1.16. However, any further losses might start another bearish wave and the price could even decline below the $1.15, $1.05, and $0.95 support levels.
However, as the technical indicator reveals, the Relative Strength Index (14) stays within the overbought region to keep the coin at the upside. However, if the bulls put more effort, the coin could hit the nearest resistance level at $1.40 level and this bullish movement may also reach the potential resistance levels at $1.50, $1.60, and $1.70 respectively.
