Ripple price action has seen a strong bullish momentum return over the past week. After a strong spike lower on the 27th of October, XRP/USD saw a sharp recovery and a consolidation above $1.07 at the end of October.

A strong rally on the 2nd of October followed, leading XRP/USD to $1.25 by the 4th of November. Since the previous highs were clearly broken, the overall market momentum has become increasingly more bullish. 

However, a retracement is needed before we can see the Ripple price set further highs. Therefore, retracement is required, with the $1.16 mark likely not enough for a new higher low set. XRP/USD will probably move even deeper, with the $1.10 mark as the next target to the downside.

Ripple Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bearish today as we expect further downside below the $1.16 support. Likely XRP/USD needs to retrace even further before more upside can be seen next week.
