  • XRP maintained a higher timeframe bullish structure.
  • Its inability to fight beyond the short-term range was concerning.

Ripple [XRP] noted some gains in the hours before press time as Bitcoin [BTC] jumped from $69.2k to $71.2k. The move was less than 3% for XRP, but it made for a bullish start to the week.

Buying pressure was on the rise, but a higher timeframe uptrend was not in place. The token has traded within a range from August 2023 to the present.

There were some signs of accumulation- should investors start buying more XRP?

The rally from $0.485 to $0.744 earlier this year saw a sizeable pullback. The 78.6% retracement level was not yet tested after the local high was formed.

Meanwhile, the OBV continued to trend upward since February.

This was a strong sign of buying pressure. It indicated accumulation was likely going on, and that XRP is due for a rally sooner or later. However, it might not be ready for it yet.

The RSI was at 49 and has meandered about the neutral 50 line for a month. This showed a persistent lack of momentum on the daily chart. XRP has also been unable to get out of the $0.57-$0.64 short-term range.

On the other hand, the mean dollar invested age (MDIA) saw a steep decline in the past two months. At press time, it has not yet climbed higher or established an uptrend. If it does so, it would be a sign of accumulation.

The dormant circulation saw a massive spike on the 1st of April, bigger than any seen in 2024. It showed that selling pressure was intense, and was a sign of a lack of faith from holders.
