XRP has a taste of both worlds.
Fundamentally, it is almost impossible to predict XRP’s next move.

To: XRP most recent huge whales’ investment.
When you’d think XRP had had enough, the Bank of England, which has so far invested hundreds of millions in XRP, recently dropped a bomb that even Bitcoin could become worthless if XRP wins its case.
XRP use case suggests immense bullishness in recent months or years; if it wins its case and the current massive market-markers’ investments hold up.
Currently trading around $0.79 as of December 15 against the USD, XRP has been relatively bearish this 2021 Q4.

XRP Price Forecast
2021 Q4 should end at that range, kicking off 2022 Q1.
In 2022 Q1, the bull run should continue to the $1.10 zone that had once acted as a support.
We expect the zone to resist the bull run for a retracement.
After this, we predict a second retracement to break the resistance zone to the upside to test the order block.
A subsequent significant bear should then drive the price towards gathering enough demand momentum to push it to the Sep.5 daily order block.
Considering XRP past price analysis, anytime it made a significant bull run; it consolidates with a strong momentum bear run.
Playing off this, we expect the price to experience a significantly short after establishing a short-range as a distribution pattern, indicating the market was preparing to sell.
Though XRP is currently bearish in its daily timeframe, the weekly is still bullish.
That is why we expect a bullish 2022.
It could only turn bearish after it must have filled the imbalances in the market structure.
We, therefore, force the price to rally up to the $1.5/$1.6 order block zone at least.
The bears are unlikely to have their way before it reaches this price zone.
If history repeats itself, nothing much is expected of 2023 Q1/Q2.
The price may experience a dump after the bullish move of the last quarters of 2022 to fill whatever imbalances the market might have left behind in its structure.
As is usual with XR, if it either makes a significant bullish or bearish move, what follows immediately is a range or consolidation as a preparation to make its next significant move.
These quarters may fall victim to the range period.
We expect the two last quarters to complete the bull cycle for this year.
And before they can achieve that, they must short to find a demand zone where they can gather demand strength to pull price higher, perhaps to test the ATH zone or even mitigate the ATH, driving the price to above $3.
We are already getting farther to the market history, so it might be challenging to have an overview projection of the price reaction for this year.
However, if the price successfully achieved a new ATH in 2023, 2024 will be full of bearish movements the same way the price played out in April 2021 when the price hit a new ATH.
In conclusion, XRP is so balanced on the bullish and bearish line that it could very possibly swing either way.
In the short while despite its surface bearish trend, betting on XRP bullishness might not be as so foolish after all.
It’s use-cases, potential outcome of its present case success and the current investments of big banks and market movers in XRP are all good incentives of a potentially significant appreciation. Of course, it could go both ways.
XRP Price Technical Analysis
2018/2019 Price Summary
In 2018 and 2019, XRP headed down the same bearish path as some altcoins, establishing lower highs and lower lows in the weekly market structure with strong momentum candles.
The price made a falling wedge pattern in its fall, which indicated the price reversal was a few swings away; a few candles later fulfilled that prophecy.
The following bullish high consolidation after January 1, 2020, bearish pattern held until March’s low mitigated January’s low into trading fluctuations of higher highs and higher lows.
2021 kicked off with a new bullish movement that got bounced off and halved to the downside by a psychological resistance at its first attempt to make a higher high.
The bounce retracement discovered an intraday demand that halted its retracement and sent it back to the upside with a momentum strong enough to break the two-times tested resistance into the $0.78 price zone.
Unfortunately for XRP, a resistance zone created on September 17, 2018, was already waiting for the price to come to test it.
As it is natural, this long-term foe proved stronger; the resistance bounced back the price with a bearish strength equal to its earlier buy momentum, selling it down to the marked broken/retested support zone.
Fortunately, this new support zone rejected the sell movement, struggled to buy a little, and encountered an intraday resistance that again resisted the price to 50% of its first buy move.
The market then picked up a strong buy momentum to the Sep 2018 created resistance zone.
The resistance zone held to sponsor a sharp sell from $0.75 to the $0.34 price zone, before finally finding support at a then-existing Feb 2020 created resistance zone.
Q2 started with a bullish consolidation on April 1, then rallied up to break the immediate resistance.
The price immediately gathered momentum from the new resistance turned support zone and launched to around $1.1.
But the price couldn’t push higher and had a 50% retracement of its buy impulse leg that started on April 1.
After the retracement, the price found support by creating a demand zone to push it to around $1.5.
It consolidated a little at the $1.5 zone, then rallied higher to $1.96 to create its present, still unbroken ATH.
The ATH ended the market’s bullish trend and dipped the price into a bearish movement of lower highs and lower lows.
The bears then took the market to a wick zone, retesting 50% of the wick.
In response, the price retraced to the upside before resuming its bearish move all the way to the already created demand zone support that, fortunately, held.
The support zone ended the bearish play to initiate the bull run of higher highs and higher lows, leaving a demand zone on April 26.
After testing the previous highs, the ongoing bullish run ended at around $1.76.
It then started dipping with what seems to lack a strong momentum; a daily BOS confirmed that the market was now bearish.
Upon breaking the bullish structure, the price retested the April 26 created demand zone support twice.
The last retest experienced a sell rejection at the demand zone strong enough to sponsor a 40% price pump to $1.70.
After the price hit $1.70, it gathered a strong sell momentum and dipped to the April 7-created demand zone.
Once again, this demand zone supported the price, and the bulls got the push they needed to take the price to the upside.
As the price retraced to the 50% Fibonacci level from the demand zone, it continued its sell movement, and this time, the longstanding demand zone couldn’t keep the price from falling to around $0.70.
The bears weren’t done; they retraced the price to around 71% Fibonacci level of the last sell leg, where it finally met a supply zone to reject further sell twice, sending the price back to the Q2 start zone. Q2 ended not long after initiating the Q3 market trend.
XRP made its only Q3 significant move in July.
It had since only ranged for more than a month before selling for a while.
After a few sideways actions, the price took off from the Q2 start zone and bought upward to an existing supply zone around $1.08.
The supply zone dipped the price in a 15% retracement before it hit a demand zone that sponsored price to continue its buy move, driving it to a 4h supply zone around $1.33.
The 4h supply zone created a high before the newly created high sent the price back to retest the below supply zone.
The supply zone support sponsored the price back to the high zone and ranged for a while before the price rallied to the upside.
This time, it broke the last high with an order block.
The order block, also known as ‘buy to sell candle’, sponsored the strong sell momentum that broke the bullish structure and dipped the price to an already created demand zone.
Another buy started from the demand zone but had a wick rejection at around 61.8 fib zone, and since then, the price kept shorting till broke the demand zone, only to start ranging after.
Just like Q2, Q3 ended in this range.
The price started Q4 by rallying up to test its last significant high, creating liquidity.
The created liquidity mitigated and caused a 40% price retracement to a 4h demand zone.
Then, it made higher highs and higher lows until it reached the OB zone and tested the order block.
Immediately it tested the order block; the price started selling, causing a bearish BOS as it continued to make lower highs and lower lows.
Then the price dipped lower to test the Q2 start zone the third time before it experienced a wick rejection and since then has been ranging.

- Will XRP ever reach $5?
As of now, there is no concrete evident that suggests a bull run picking up enough Momentum and support to hit a $5 ATH. Although, it is not out of the question.
XRP has one of the most unique use cases out there. In recent years, XRP demand is bound to rise tremendously. The ripple effect of such demands can do wonders to XRP Marketcap.
Although the chances or this happening before 2022’s summer is slim.
