1. XRP Price Movements and Technical Build Up
Despite being the world’s third-largest cryptocurrency by market, XRP has stayed somewhat hesitant to participate in the crypto market rally in the last two months. XRP is currently trading above $0.40 with some modest daily trading volumes above $1.4 billion.
Over the last two weeks from today, XRP price swing has shown movements between $0.38 - $0.48 as seen in the chart above. The chart shows that despite the steady rise earlier, XRP lost momentum.
However, XRP has managed to stay above its crucial support levels of $0.40 despite the recent fall in its price. At press time, XRP is trading at a price of $0.40 with a market cap of $17.3 billion.
A number of comments from crypto traders say that strong technicals are building up for XRP and the cryptocurrency is poised to surge northwards to $0.50.

"Gordon Gekko" is, in fact, ultra-bullish on XRP to rise. Citing historical “daily golden” chart patterns in 2017 and XRP’s price surge to $4 levels post that, Gekko expects similar price shoot-up ahead in a few weeks. According to Gekko XRP’s price could hit anywhere between $7-10 in the next 3-6 weeks.
For you all that didn’t witness 2017 we hit the daily golden cross at .20 quickly over 3 weeks hit 3.50 golden cross 2019 at approx .40 a redo could mean a 7 dollar $xrp in 3 weeks with utility 10 bucks +++— Sir Gordon Gekko (@gordongekko369) May 28, 2019
