Ripple’s momentum is strongly backed by the spectacular rise of BTCUSD before the upcoming halving. This momentum has suddenly caused the indicators to form a bullish outlook for XRPUSD, although in the short term.
Ripple suffered a setback earlier in the past week. Since then, it has been on a recovery mode slowly yet steadily. With the BTC reward halving coming up in just three days, it could be testing times for XRPUSD.
