  • XRP price is showing multiple bearish indicators, including the rising wedge and the descending parallel channel, since June 22.
  • Ripple could see a maximum projection of a 17% decline from the current price.
  • The bearish outlook could be voided if positive sentiment emerges from the impending deposition in the SEC lawsuit.

XRP price has printed two bearish chart patterns consecutively, suggesting Ripple could face further decline. The blockchain firm has made progress in the lawsuit filed by the US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) after the judge in the case approved of the company’s questioning of a former agency official, William Hinman

XRP price could see a 17% decline 

XRP price has generated a rising wedge pattern prior to posting a descending parallel channel shortly after on the daily chart. 

While Ripple has attempted to break above the rising wedge, XRP price failed to break above the aforementioned pattern’s lower boundary, which led to the subsequent consolidation pattern.

The expected target of the rising wedge pattern is measured to be a 26% decline from the breakout, which would see XRP price drop to $0.49. 

Adding credence to the bearish bias, another target for XRP price is given from the declining price range. By drawing another parallel channel directly underneath, Ripple projects a 17% drop from the current price, reaching a low of $0.48.

XRP/USDT daily chart

Investors should take note of the impending death cross, where the 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) slices below the 200-day SMA, which could further heighten the selling pressure of Ripple.

However, the aforementioned XRP price targets would only be in effect if Ripple loses the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.55 at support and falling further into the demand zone, which extends from $0.50 to $0.55.

XRP price could potentially have another play in store, given the progress that it has made in the SEC case. Willian Hinman, a former agency official, is scheduled for a deposition on July 27. He will face questioning by the blockchain firm of his previous statement that indicates Ethereum is not a security.

If XRP price is able to leverage on the positive sentiment, Ripple could reverse the period of underperformance, but resistance is heavy on its way to recovery. 

XRP price could target the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.62 if selling pressure subsides. Until then, Ripple could continue to move sideways.
