XRP price to tumble before huge spike, top trader says
Matthew Dixon, chief executive officer at Evai, recently made a prediction concerning the future price movement of XRP. In his tweet from May 23, he predicted that the Ripple-affiliated crypto will first experience a significant downturn, plunging to as low as $0.34, but after that it will see a massive rebound, potentially surpassing $0.6. Dixon based his prediction on Elliot Wave Theory, which suggests that prices move in waves, typically consisting of five "impulse" waves followed by three "corrective" waves. In XRP's case, the "X wave" — the last impulse wave — would be a minor upward move and would be followed by a "Y wave" — a corrective wave — to the downside. However, the token is expected to rally after that.
