  • A whale transferred a massive 29.7 million XRP tokens worth $12.7 million to an unknown wallet. 
  • According to technical and price action analysis, XRP looks bullish in the shorter time frame and may hit the $0.46 level.

On 6th July, a blockchain-based transaction tracker Whale Alert made a post on X stating that a whale transferred a massive 29.7 million XRP  tokens worth $12.7 million from the world’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange Binance.

This notable XRP transfer might indicate accumulation by whales as it fell over 15% on 5th July. 

Why is XRP’s price increasing?

After significant selling pressure across the cryptocurrency sector, the market now looks to recover as top crypto assets including Bitcoin [BTC],  Ethereum [ETH], and Solana [SOL] have experienced a massive price surge.

The reason behind this potential market recovery could be the substantial $143 million inflow to Bitcoin ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) and whale interest.

XRP technical analysis and key levels

According to expert technical analysis, XRP is looking bearish as it gave a breakdown of a major support level at $0.47.

Besides this breakdown, the Ripple token was also moving below a 200 Exponential Moving Average (EMA) on a daily time frame, which further signals bearishness.

However, the technical indicator Relative Strength Index (RSI) shows that XRP is in an oversold area. This RSI oversold area signals a potential recovery.

While analyzing the chart and these indicators it looks that if the token closes above $0.435 on a daily time frame, we may see an upside move to the $0.46 level for a short period.

Whereas, data from an on-chain analytic firm CoinGlass highlights that traders are currently more bearish because of a higher short position compared to long positions over a 7-day time frame.

Additionally, traders expect that XRP won’t reach the $0.46 level, as there are $14.85 million worth of short positions at that level. If it reaches the $0.46 level then $14.85 million of short positions will liquidate.

Besides this technical analysis, XRP was trading near $0.433 at press time and has experienced a price surge of over 8% in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.

If we look at the performance of XRP over a longer period, it has lost over 9% of its value in the last seven days. Whereas, in the last 30 days the token experienced a price drop of over 18%.
