  • XRP price has retraced its move over the past week, undoing the 12% gains. 
  • A support confluence at $0.340 stands between Ripple bulls and a 10% move.
  • If buyers seize control, the altcoin could rally 10% and retest the $0.380 hurdle.

XRP price, like many altcoins, has undone its gains witnessed over the last week. This development comes as the Bitcoin price struggles to move above a historically significant barrier. If bears take control of BTC, things could reflect the same for Ripple and other altcoins as well. 

XRP price needs to make a decision

XRP price broke free from a two-month declining resistance level on July 18 as it rallied 6.3% in a single daily candlestick. As a result, Ripple set a swing high at $0.380, which in hindsight, was a local top for this rally, which started on July 13.

Since the  July 13 swing low at $0.301, XRP price has set up multiple swing points in the area, extending from $0.301 to $0.311. This zone can be termed a liquidity pool and is likely what is preventing  Ripple from going lower.

A breakdown of the support confluence consisting of the declining trend line and the horizontal foothold at $0.340 will confirm the directional bias for XRP price. Assuming buyers fail to defend the aforementioned barrier, investors can expect a quick 10% drop to $0.301.

On the other hand, if XRP price manages to bounce off the $0.340 support confluence, there is a high chance of bulls taking back control. In such a case, investors can expect XRP price to rally 10% and retest the $0.380 hurdle.

In a highly bullish case, a flip of $0.380 could lead to a sweep of the double top at $0.387, bringing the total run-up to 14%.
