XRP Jumps as Bullish ‘Golden Cross’ Pattern Appears in Price Chart

XRP, the digital token used in Ripple Labs’ payments network, was outperforming bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies on Tuesday, with a longer-duration technical indicator flashing a bullish signal. The token’s price was around 48 cents at press time, up 9% on a 24-hour basis, based on CoinDesk 20 data. Other prominent cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, ether, chainlink and litecoin were nursing moderate losses.

XRP’s 50-week moving average crossed above the 100-week moving average (MA) earlier this month, confirming a pattern known in price charts as a “golden crossover” – a long-term bullish indicator. Traders and chart-reading analysts often see the golden cross as a sign of a definitive uptrend. As such, the latest cross may attract stronger buying pressure from trend-following traders, leading to continued price gains.
