XRP has seen some intense losses over the past week, with the cryptocurrency sliding from highs within the mid-$0.30 region into the lower-$0.20, erasing the bulk of the gains it incurred as a result of its intense 2020 uptrend.
This recent selloff may not be long-lasting, as analysts are noting that the crypto could still be poised to see significantly further near-term upside due to the heavy support around its current price levels.
Crypto market sees capitulatory selloff, sending XRP and other altcoins reeling lower.
In tandem, XRP and many other altcoins saw selloffs of 10 percent or more, and despite the sharp recovery that occurred shortly after this, the markets have been drifting lower in the time since.
It now appears that most major cryptos have formed an incredibly close correlation to Bitcoin's price movements, slightly underperforming it during selloffs and marginally outperforming it during bounces.
If XRP wants to recover some of its recent losses, it likely hinges on whether or not BTC is able to find some stability or begin climbing higher.
This strong support region may bolster the embattled cryptocurrency.
Even if Bitcoin does enter a prolonged bout of sideways trading or inches lower in the near-term, it is possible that XRP will be able to incur some short-term momentum due to heavy support that exists around its current price levels.
Crypto Micahël, a prominent cryptocurrency analyst and trader, spoke about this support in a recent tweet, explaining that he believes it could help the cryptocurrency rally up towards $0.30 if bulls are able to recapture $0.245.
Unless BTC sees another intense near-term selloff, its stability could allow some altcoins to recapture a portion of their recent losses.
