After a strong beginning of November, we have seen bearish momentum return for the Ripple price action. On the 10th of November, a strong higher high was set at $1.35, reversing the market with a sharp drop to $1.115 a couple of hours later.

Since then, we saw XRP/USD consolidate above $1.16 and testing upside at $1.22 before another reversal followed on the 15th of November. This time, Ripple dropped almost 15 percent to the $1.04 mark.

Yesterday, consolidation followed, slowly setting up the Ripple price action for moving higher. The spike higher came overnight, quickly reaching $1.16 previous support before bearish momentum quickly returned. Over the past hours, XRP/USD has moved lower again, likely leading to a retest of previous lows later today.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bearish today as the $1.16 mark prevented further upside overnight, sending XRP back towards previous lows. Therefore, XRP/USD will likely move even lower, potentially setting a new lower low over the next 24 hours.
