With the uncertainty comes doubt, and investors are turning to experts for advice and predictions, wondering whether XRP will manage to revisit its all-time highs or is headed for another period of devaluation.
XRP could be an ‘early Christmas present’
In his recent analysis, well-known chartist CoinsKid noted that XRP may be about to “give its holders an early Christmas present.”
Picked for you
Notably, the analyst highlighted that sellers have been shorting XRP at a critical support level.
These areas often act as barriers to price declines, with the potential for reversals. If the price fails to break below a key support level, it may attract buying interest, trigger stop-loss orders, and shift market sentiment, leading to losses for short sellers, as per his post on X on December 18.
In that case, XRP could experience what is known as a ‘short squeeze’ and propel the crypto asset’s price exponentially.
Ascending parallel channel might not be so good
After six months of seeing the XRP price move through the ascending parallel channel, with constant testing and the suppression of upper and middle lines, recent performance is not so promising.
XRP is currently operating within the confines of an ascending parallel channel. Following a rejection at the mid-line of the channel, XRP could undergo a pullback, potentially retracing towards the lower boundary, situated around $0.55, as per a post from crypto analyst Ali Martinez on December 17.
Positive outlook for the future
In recent months, the initial objective was for XRP to surpass its descending wedge; however, despite breaching, the momentum proved transient. The current XRP/BTC chart illustrates that XRP positioned beneath the Yellow Triangle as BTC experienced a bullish surge to $44,000.
While the forthcoming movement may test the patience of holders, a meticulous analysis of numerous charts supports a confident projection of $1.3-$1.5 on the horizon, reinforcing steadfast dollar targets, as per crypto analyst EGRAG CRYPTO post on December 18.
Whether this digital asset will be able to mimic the previous achievements or not remains to be seen; nevertheless, investors should be careful when investing and should conduct a proper analysis prior to allocating assets.
