XRP looked bullish on the 4-hour price chart, as it first breached the symmetrical triangle and then formed another descending channel, both considered a sign of bullish sentiment. A descending channel is characterized by two parallel falling lines where the lower highs formed at $0.285, $0.283 and $0.276. The lower lows formed at $0.273, $0.266 and $0.265. XRP is well set for an upward breakout.

The prices remained under ema-ribbon, which is considered as a bullish sign. The price volatility was high since 7th October but it has reduced in the last couple of days. A breach of the pattern might push XRP prices toward $0.2874 in the next couple of days.
