Ripple's XRP Technical Analysis: a big chunky breakout is imminent for XRP/USD

  • Ripple's XRP price on Thursday is nursing losses of around 1% into the second part of the day. 
  • Upside momentum seen in the session on Wednesday, has failed to be carried through, as bears continue to sell rallies. 
  • Given the length of time XRP/USD has been confined within the range seen via the daily view, chunky momentum is likely to follow soon. The direction of that remains unclear, however, the price for now appears vulnerable to downside.
