• XRP price has been hovering around the $0.604 support level for almost ten days.
  • A resurgence of buying pressure at $0.604 could see Ripple rally 20% to $0.757.
  • However, a breakdown of the $0.604 barrier could lead to a 20% crash to $0.518.

XRP price suffered a fatal crash along with other altcoins in the crypto space on January 21. While many cryptocurrencies have recovered, Ripple seems to be devoid of volatility as it forms a base. 

XRP price lacks directional bias

XRP price has been testing the $0.604 barrier for roughly ten days with no significant bias leaning either way. Moreover, the volatility seems to be lost as daily returns for the crypto are hovering around 2 to 4%.

The $0.604 barrier is crucial in determining where XRP price will head next. A resurgence of buying pressure could be the key to triggering a 20% upswing to the daily supply zone, extending from $0.757 to $0.807.

Due to the presence of the 50-day Simple Moving Average inside the said supply zone at $0.773, there is a good chance the upside will be capped around this area. Therefore, a 21% gain seems likely for the remittance token.

While a bounce off the $0.604 barrier could induce a bullish outlook, a breakdown of the same support level will indicate that a leg down is likely for XRP price. In this situation, Ripple will revisit the $0.518 support barrier and slice through it to collect the sell-side liquidity resting below it. 

This 20% crash would further remove the need for XRP price to head lower and set up a base for a move higher.
