XRP Set To Skyrocket 60,000% On Tightest Bollinger Bands Ever

XRP price analysis

In an analysis shared via X and YouTube, crypto analyst Matt “The Great Mattsby” Hughes highlighted what could be a historic move for the XRP price, based on the Bollinger Bands indicator. Hughes points to an impending squeeze in XRP’s monthly Bollinger Bands, suggesting a potential spike similar to previous rallies where the cryptocurrency saw massive gains.

Hughes explained via X: “XRP has one of the tightest monthly Bollinger Band squeezes in its history and in all of crypto right now. The last time it squeezed like that, it shot up 60,000%.” In a YouTube video, the crypto analyst went into more detail, explaining how the XRP price has behaved in the past when the Bollinger Bands have been this tight.

During this period, the XRP price consolidated for several months, causing the Bollinger Bands to tighten dramatically. After this period of consolidation, the XRP price skyrocketed, achieving gains that Hughes estimates to be around 60,000%.

The Bollinger Bands are a technical analysis tool defined by a set of trendlines two standard deviations (positive and negative) away from a simple moving average (SMA) of a security’s price, but can be adjusted to suit the user’s preferences. A narrowing of these bands typically indicates low volatility with the potential for a major bullish or bearish price movement once the bands begin to widen again.

Hughes also examines the duration from the all-time high to the current price, noting that 2,373 days have elapsed. This long period of relative inactivity in price growth, combined with the extreme tightness of the Bollinger Bands, forms the basis of his prediction of an imminent significant move higher.

“It’s the tightest in its history as well so that just kind of proves to me that there is going to be a move…
