Ripple Price Forecast: XRP shows significant signs of a potential sell-off down to $0.40

  • Ripple price could be on the verge of a significant sell-off according to a crucial indicator. 
  • XRP has experienced wild volatility because a Reddit group organized a pump on the digital asset.
  • Concerns about the SEC lawsuit are still in the air and negatively affect XRP.

On January 30, Ripple price had a massive breakout jumping by 155% and quickly plummeted down to $0.36 in less than 10 hours. The pump was caused by a Reddit group named WallStreetBets which also caused a massive short squeeze on the stock of Gamestop. 

Ripple price at risk of another significant sell-off

On the 9-hour chart, the TD Sequential indicator has presented a sell signal and it’s on the brink of doing the same on a shorter timeframe on the 2-hour chart. Validation of this call can drive Ripple price down to the 100-SMA at $0.40 on the 9-hour chart.

XRP Sell Signals

The most concerning bearish sign for XRP in the long-term is the significant decrease in the number of whales holding at least 10,000,000 coins. On December 25, 2020, this number was hovering all-time highs at 356 but quickly plummeted down to 300 currently.
