XRPUSD Is Trapped In ConsolidationSep 7, 2022

XRPUSD is trapped in consolidation as recent sideways corrective running triangle structure suggests more weakness.

Ripple – XRPUSD is bearish for the last year, but looking at the daily chart, we see an A-B-C corrective decline from April 2021 highs. It’s actually already trading in final stages of wave C and it can be slowly approaching the end. Wave C is a motive wave and it should be completed by a five-wave cycle of the lower degree, but looks like final subwave of 5 of C is still missing.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, we can see a sideways corrective structure which indicates for a bearish running triangle pattern within wave 4, but we may see some rally as final subwave (E) may still occur. So, once a triangle is fully completed, watch out for a continuation lower within final 5th wave of C. If from any reason we see a strong bounce back above 0.5 then bulls can be back, especially if rise would be in five waves.
