XRP price edges near a make-or-break situation

XRP price continues to show concerning on-chain analysis signals. The previous XRP outlook reported a significant increase in daily active wallets. On Monday, U.Todays’ Yuri Mulchan confounded the on-chain analysis  with a breacking news piece. According to the article Nearly 300 million tokens were transferred to exchanges. Whale Alert, the notorious crypto auditor, took to twitter with more information on the sudden movements on the blockchain.

XRP price currency auctions at $0.37, just below last week's high at $0.39. Based on historical evidence, cryptocurrencies usually witness a significant sell-off after influx of transactions occur. The large transfers of XRP tokens to active wallets is symbolic with a rifleman loading his artillery. It appears there is a substantial interest in selling the XRP token at the current time and price.

XRP price additionally shows subtle bearish divergences between recent trading levels on the Relative Strength Index. There is always a possibility for prices to move higher, but for the safety of our readers, it is best to adopt a reactionary investment strategy when dealing with the XRP price. A breach below $0.35 could send XRP price back to $0.24 for a 35% decline.

A breach above the $0.48 would invalidate the bearish trend and could give way to bullish surge targeting $0.75 in the short term for up to a 100% increase from the current Ripple price.
