XRP price saw a major spike on Aug. 26, hinting at a possible effect from some big traders.Large XRP transfers, Ripple Swell Global eventNotably, XRP’s price jumped 6% to $0.37, a two-week high, during the early London hours. The token’s upside move occurred hours after its network processed three massive transfers worth $51 million involving crypto exchanges Bitso and FTX, as highlighted by Whale Alert.XRP/USD hourly price chart.

The market has seen similar reactions to the Swell event in the past.Bearish reversal setup in playXRP’s intraday spike left behind a “Graveyard Doji,” a bearish reversal candlestick with open, close and low prices near each other with a long upper wick. This candlestick suggests that the price rally witnessed at the beginning of the session was overwhelmed by bears by the end of it.XRP/USD four-hour price chart. Source: TradingViewXRP now trades nearly 4% below its intraday high, testing a support confluence. The confluence comprises the upper trendline of XRP’s previous “ascending triangle” (at $0.35) and the 50-4H exponential moving average (50-4H EMA; the red wave in the chart above) near $0.343.From a technical perspective, a break below the support confluence risks re-triggering the ascending triangle setup, with its profit target at around $0.33. In other words, a 7% price decline by September when measured from Aug. 26’s price.Related: Ripple CTO lashes back at Vitalik Buterin for his dig at XRPConversely, a rebound after testing the support confluence could have XRP eye a recovery rally toward the $0.36–$0.38 range (marked in red in the chart above).
