Dow Theory

The XRP price currently appears to be in the panic phase, which is in fact the ensuing part of the distribution phase. During this phase the investors from the accumulation phase start distributing and selling their digital currency which leads to panic in the market, and the result is that the virtual coin is oversold and the accumulation phase begins yet again.
