XRP has registered five straight bullish sessions as the price moves in a flag formation. The coin’s value now faces immediate resistance at $0.2452 and will need to break above the SMA 50.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is staying around 52.85, providing the bulls with sufficient space to do their thing before the asset heads towards the overbought zone; therefore, overtaking the SMA 50 curve shouldn’t be a problem.

The hourly chart is also heading in an upward trend in a flag formation. Throughout this movement, the RSI has shifted from the oversold territory and is currently trending around 63.75, close to the overbought zone.

Still, while every other signal so far has been positive, there is an augury that could initiate a short-term bearish correction. The hourly XRP chart has shown the sell signal in the TD sequential, and even though the bearish formation has yet to be affirmed, a short-term correction may be impeding.

The social volume chart for Ripple depicts a surge this Friday and Saturday. During this period, the price has engaged positively with the increases. However, more attention is not always a good sign for the continuation of the uptrend; when prices rise, and the users start paying attention, the drop usually follows almost immediately.

Keeping XRP Liquidity High

The blockchain giant Ripple uses its OTC wallets to cash out sections of its XRP amounts. This keeps the liquidity of the asset high and helps the company obtain fiat cash for its operational expenses.

Ripple owns more than half of the total XRP supply, which is why many opponents criticize the company. On Friday, Ripple also transferred 25 million XRP to its OTC distribution wallet, while moving 74.6 million XRP in total.
