Ripple (XRP) Price Prediction: Analysis
Ripple charts now show a serious consolidation pattern after the huge price drop from mid-March. Since February 15th the XRP/USD pair lost 50% of its value, going down from $0.34.78 to $0.1622. Ripple recovered from its lowest price of $0.1105 low on 13th March, with the coin establishing new higher lows every week, $0.13 (March 16th) and $0.15 (March 21), respectively. Some analysts still believe that on the higher timeframes, XRP is still going through a firm downtrend, while others predict that this is the sign of a bullish formation.
On March 12, Ripple (XRP) managed to trade above the $0.20 level, but then dropped back down to $0.13 and kept on consolidating. The coin is currently trading sideways, varying in price between $0.12 and $0.17. The main problem is that the resistance is just above $0.17, and Ripple has failed to reach or surpass this value.
The major support levels are currently at $0.158 and $0.156, and if the coin drops lower than those values, Ripple could go right back to $0.11 support.
The first major resistance is set at $0.165 level, with $0.171 being the highest resistance level. If the coin manages to break past $0.171, then this could move XRP outside of the recent consolidation trend and push it to reach $0.2000.
The trader with the handle “TradingShot” put forward two likely possibilities for XRP’s price evolution:
“There are two scenarios for XRPUSD right now: Either (A) a +220% Lower High rise as in 2018 to $0.30 or (B) a slower rise to a Lower High at $0.24 assuming the April heavy sell-off was an anomaly caused by the coronavirus panic.”

100 mln XRP were transferred from one Ripple wallet to another. 30 mln XRP were delivered to multi-signature wallets hosted by the BitGo platform.
On March 19th, Ripple announced a new partnership with Thai fintech startup, DeeMoney. DeeMoney is currently using Ripple’s payment messaging system to process inbound payments to Thailand from South Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Israel, Middle East, and Gulf regions.
“DeeMoney provides same-day settlement into all Thai bank accounts, making it an effective pay-out partner for international remittance companies with volumes into Thailand.
With RippleNet, the transfer process is more efficient for those sending money from the growing number of financial institutions, and at the best possible rates.”
Marcus Treacher, Ripple senior vice president of customer success, noted that the partnership is the first for Ripple in this geographical area.
“The digital banking revolution is taking Thailand by storm, and DeeMoney is a key player in this. By being the first non-bank institution in Thailand to use RippleNet, it redraws the boundaries and rules of engagement by providing efficient international transfers at low fees and competitive rates.”
In other news, it was revealed that Ripple’s partner Intermex will not be using Ripple (XRP)’s technology in its South American markets. Robert Lisv, the chief executive of Intermex, explained:
“So, you won’t really see us leveraging Ripple in our core markets. I think it will bring us more growth in newer markets in places where we’re exploring going into ancillary products.”
A recent interview also brought to light that another Ripple partner, MoneyGram, liquidates all XRP tokens as soon as the tokens are received.
