XRP price shows a powerful downtrend developing. Key levels have been established.

XRP price is falling sharply

Ripple's XRP price is building momentum to the downside as the bears have lost support from the $0.47 level. On October 17, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) breached oversold territory on the 30-minute chart as the digital remittance token displays stair-stepping price action to the downside. If market conditions are as genuinely bearish as they seem, a sweep of the October lows will likely occur.

XRP price currently auctions at $0.45. The 8-day EMA and 21-day SMA catalyzed the current decline on Monday, October 17, rejecting the XRP price from the $0.485 level. If market conditions persist, the moving averages are likely to produce a bearish death cross, which will spell serious trouble for bulls in the market.
