XRP price technical breakdown boosts chances of a 40% drop by July

XRP price stares at potential losses in the coming weeks as it breaks out of a “descending triangle” pattern, with its bias skewed toward the downside.

Major XRP breakdown underway

To recap, XRP started forming the technical structure after reaching $1.98 in April 2021, its second-highest level to date. In doing so, the token trended lower inside a range defined by a falling resistance trendline and a horizontal support trendline.

On May 16, 2022, XRP broke below the triangle’s support trendline, accompanying a decent increase in trading volumes.

The move confirmed the descending triangle as a bearish reversal indicator. Meanwhile, as a rule of technical analysis, XRP now risks extending its downside move by as much as the triangle’s maximum height when measured from the breakdown point, as shown below.
