Hi friends! Welcome to this update analysis on Ripple. As many of you know, I have publicized two notorious analyses, titled "Will Ripple Crash To ZERO?". Those analyses, and the arguments upon which they were created, are derived from the massive head and shoulders formation that XRP produced, as it was reaching it's all-time high. The size, and implications of the structure, suggest that price could fall to zero, if the head and shoulders pattern were to correct to it's full potential.

Looking at the chart, we can see that XRP has created a new symmetrical triangle formation. Previously, there was a smaller triangle (seen with the dashed black trendline ) that broke to the upside, only to form this new, larger triangle. This price action is identical to what we are seeing in many of the other cryptos, and it suggests that a downside continuation is highly probable. For those who are unaware, symmetrical triangles are typically continuation patterns. Since we are in a bear market correction, the continuation would have to be to the downside.

Before we go any further, and delve into the beautiful fractal nature of this chart, I want to emphasize the fact that I am a strong believer in fractal market theory. In mathematics, fractals can be described as fragmented geometric shapes, that can be broken into smaller parts, which fully or NEARLY replicate the whole. Yesterday, someone commented on one of my posts that "The problem is 'professional traders', as you call yourself, think market has a pattern all the time, and is a beautiful drawing."

He's absolutely right.

Looking at the chart, you can see that when XRP ran up to the all-time high, it formed a head and shoulders pattern. After measuring the height of the head and shoulders pattern, and subtracting that amount from the neckline, we can see that it gives us a price target around \$0. Many people did NOT like to hear that, in my "Will Ripple Crash To Zero?" posts. However, more recently, XRP has formed this series of symmetrical triangles. When I measure the newest symmetrical triangle, and subtract that measurement from the proposed breakdown level, we can see that the price projection is not too far, percentage wise, from that of the head and shoulders pattern. THAT, is the fractal nature of the markets at work. It is fragmented geometric shapes, that fully or nearly replicate the whole. With that in mind, I think it is inevitable that we reach the symmetrical triangle target. I realize that the implications of the head and shoulders pattern are drastic. Personally, I have no idea if XRP will go to zero. I'm just showing you what's on the chart.

Regardless, I am still a TRADER! I analyze the market, in a very efficient and accurate way. However, if the market moves against my analyses, I am generally quick to reconsider my positions. I am nimble, and not at all emotionally attached to my views on the market. Therefore, if I were to see an upside breakout, above the heavy overhead resistance, I would definitely consider new bullish positions. However, given the overall picture of this chart, and how close the fractal symmetry of it is, I highly doubt we will see an upside breakout, before we reach the downside target.

This has been your not-so-humble market wizard, droppin' knowledge like bombs in this place! Please follow, comment, like, and share on social media. Good luck trading everyone!

Kommentar: Fact: Symmetrical triangles often return to the apex. After a breakout (up or down,) the apex can turn into a future support or resistance point. Price can sometimes return to the apex before resuming in the direction of the initial breakout.
Brilliant, I am in mathematical awe of the excellent TA I've seen in a few people here. I also appreciate the 'I am a trader' view, since most people get too stuck on loving a stock or crypto and don't see what the traders are doing. The majority of the time, the market trades on technicals, aside from the few times the fundamentals kick in. I am on a quest to find the long term winners (or losers for a short positions) based on the good or bad fundamentals of the venture. I truly appreciate the brilliance of the TA traders and thank you for the in depth analysis!

Hi, I see that XRP is respecting what is plotted here, went down the triangle and pointing to the blue trend line. The prophecy is fulfilled. The trend is towards \$ 1 or less then? At least Bittrex I see that BTC and XRP are still falling with good volume increase, it means that investors are detached from stock? So with this panorama, what alternative option is there besides looking for a short one? Almost all the coins are in red the last days. Leaving the market and waiting for a new status to be defined? Is there exit from this situation? I keep a long XRP position but I'm tired of waiting for the train to go north. Tks

Blah, blah, blah...
I can't believe its happened again. Why nobody can see what I see long time ago? Ripple just touch again my trend and next step is bouncing up targeting to 2 dollars.

@dinopiccinin, Yep, but it may be not drawn so precise. Let's see the next move!
If it broke that channel, we can prepare bor a big drop!
It is very big period, and I cannot draw it so precise everywhere. As example here is another try:

@nixel, I have always read/learned that when a certain trend is broken it is not valid anymore. The trend is broken at the end of 2017, so I doubt the validity of this parallel channel...
