The biggest problem for XRP is still the long term resistance, since october 2019 ripple can’t break this trendline but maybe this time will be different. Worst case scenario If the falling wedge breaks down XRP will visit previous lower support 1950 satoshi and possibly head slightly lower to touch lower trendline.

On the Weekly charts, XRP formed a falling wedge and this is pretty bullish as eventually we will see an uptrend and breakout from it. The target would be around 3300-3400 satoshi. The weekly outlook would be very important if XRP can close above 2365 Sats it will form a very bullish candlestick (hammer) previous week closed with a bullish doji, both candles on higher frame would signal uptrend for ripple.
