Ripple had gone above the $0.70 mark on the 13th of April last week but the momentum died out. The coin right now seems to be consolidating below the $0.70. There is a considerable support for the coin at $0.62.
Brian Powell, a Ripple investor from Kentucky says:
“There is a major bullish breakout waiting in line for Ripple and as of now I’m looking to HODL the coins till there is a major uptrend. There is a buying pressure for Ripple as it dropped below the $0.70 mark and there is a buy wall formation on the exchange Bitfinex. A 50% hike is expected which would take the coin to $0.774 by the 21st of this month.”
Alex Murphy, an altcoin miner from Denver says:
“The next targets set for XRP is at $0.82-$0.84 and the right time to buy XRP would be at $0.63. The coin is currently looking to find an uptrend hit and is testing the resistance levels. It is highly recommended that the investors should look to HODL their contracts in their hands and stop at the 500% return of Fibonacci.”
Kevin Nelson, a financial advisor from Gisborne says:
“The target at $0.855 shall soon be achieved by XRP as it has broken out of Cup and Handle pattern. This means that the price should move upwards at least to the lengths of the Cup pattern formation. The resistance formed at the Handle had been broken by the coin which signals a bullish trend which will kick in soon.”
Jonathan Williams, a cryptocurrency enthusiast says:
“Positive future and with amazing prospects, I believe in the technology, in the next 24 hours it will gain slightly but mostly hold its position.”
To conclude, 73% of Ripple respondents feel bullish and are of the opinion that the coin will test the major resistance levels and break into a bullish trend if the volume continues to increase. Another minor 27% of Ripple respondents are bearish as the coin failed to stay above the $0.70 mark for a longer time which according to them is bearish.
