XRP’s impressive 24-hour journey, has its genesis at the local bottom of $0.435 set early yesterday, December 16th. After the dip to this level, XRP recaptured the $0.45 support zone that had been highlighted by crypto analyst MagicPoopCannon. Magic had identified it as a crucial level that would determine the short-term fate of the remittance coin.
XRP has since experienced a local high of $0.58 signifying a 33% increment from the aforementioned local bottom. At the time of writing, XRP is trading at $0.562 in what looks like consolidation in preparation for a second push up.
XRP Could Explode Higher if the Market Marches Higher
In an update to his earlier analysis of XRP, MagicPoopCannon forecasted that XRP could ‘explode higher’ if the crypto market continues with its current bullish momentum. Magic’s statement was shared via Twitter and can be found below.
XRP is the only top coin down over the last 7 days. While that might sound negative, it had a very healthy retrace exactly to the 61.8% mark, after a powerful rally to about 0.90. XRP could explode higher, if the market continues to march higher as a whole.

XRP’s Fate is Tied to Bitcoin’s
As with all analyses of altcoins such as XRP, traders and investors are reminded that the remittance coin is heavily correlated to Bitcoin. This, in turn, means that for XRP to thrive, Bitcoin has to experience some sideways movemenet or moderate volatility in either direction.
