Ripple Price May Drop To Below $1.080 Level

The short-term XRP price prediction bearish as validated by the technical indicators. A look at the chart shows that an extended bearish leg could take the Ripple price below the $1.080 crucial support level.

Considering that Ripple bulls unsuccessfully defended the $1.080 support area 10 times since August 14, it is likely the international remittances coin will revisit areas below this level. If this happens, it will extend XRP towards the $1.0 psychological level embraced by the lower boundary of the descending parallel channel as seen on the four-hour chart.

This bearish outlook is validated by the movement of the Moving Averages Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator line (blue) below the signal line (orange). Moreover, the position of the MACD below the neutral line in the negative region points to a bearish momentum.

This will happen when the blue MACD line (the 12-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA)) crosses above the orange signal line (26-day SMA). If this happens, it will trigger sell orders that would likely lift the Ripple price way from the $1.080 support wall.
