XRP Maintains a Steady Positive Price Movement
Ripple’s XRP has been quiet for two months now unlike virtual assets like Bitcoin, EOS, Litecoin, and Bitcoin SV which have made headlines for their sudden northward movement. However, XRP is about to join the party if we go by what a number of professional crypto traders are saying.
In one sentence, they expect a bull run that will take XRP from the $0.40 price level which it has maintained and maybe for too long. Two weeks ago, it made attempts to cross a $0.48 market value however, the resistance was not broken. Thus, it has been slow and steady even though it looks like that won’t be the case soon.

So, what is the crypto community saying? ‘The Cryptomist’ in a tweet on June 2, 2019, stated that we are once again testing resistance to reach the apex of the pennant.

According to the crypto analyst on May 28, 2019, the “daily golden cross” patterns that were exhibited in 2017 before XRP’s final surge to $3.50 is currently being exhibited. However, he expects that the intending bull run might set the virtual asset’s price between $7-$10 in the about 3 to 6 weeks.
