Expect to see XRP price tick $0.48 and possibly stretch to $0.50, booking gains of 20%.
On Friday, the XRP price disappointed investors the most within the cryptocurrency market. The Ripple price broke away from a consolidative triangle pattern, sending the XRP price to revisit $0.38.

XRP price could continue its erratic nature for days to come. The long-held dispute between the two forces is likely the only thing holding XRP price from reaching $1.00 and beyond. A dollar-cost average approach is still a favorable strategy for XRP maximists aiming for long-term macro targets.
At the beginning of the week, Cardano's price faced immense selling pressure combined with a lack of volatility as it approached the $0.487 to $0.614 range’s midpoint at $0.551. ADA failed to sustain a rally and break the key resistance as the price was dangerously close to critical support. ADA attempted to rally on Monday, but the price was quickly pushed back to the key support at $0.50. The important resistance was at $0.60, and Cardano only managed to test this level once when it was sharply rejected
On Tuesday, Cardano's price action continued to dip lower and lower, following the broader market in a continued downtrend.
On May 26, 2022, Cardano dipped below the $0.50 support level over the past few hours. Cardano’s price prepared for a retest of $0.80. ADA price, like several cryptocurrencies, hovered around the initial sell-off price that occurred on May 12th. Cardano’s situation was very similar to Ethereum, with its price falling below the key support at $0.50. This turned the bias bearish, and the next support is found at $0.39. For this reason, ADA had a difficult week, closing the past seven days in the red with a 14.2% loss.
The cryptocurrency might fall lower before attempting a recovery in the coming days. Buyers seem less likely to come to the rescue at present, particularly when the key support level is much lower than the current price. Looking ahead, ADA has to do its best to not close a daily candle below $0.39. This was the all-time high from May 2018 and was also confirmed in January 2021 before ADA rallied towards $3. A loss of this critical level would take ADA into a severe correction exceeding a 90% price drop from its current all-time high.
On 23 May 2022, Solana's price steadily moved toward its short-term target at $77.98. Solana's price has been consolidating above a stable support level for nearly two weeks and is slowly climbing higher. Patient investors can capitalize on this steady climb to crucial hurdles.

Solana's price has been consolidating above a stable support level for nearly two weeks and is slowly climbing higher. Patient investors can capitalize on this steady climb to crucial hurdles.

Solana did not manage to stop the downtrend on Friday, and the price fell below the important support at $44. The cryptocurrency is on a path to re-test the critical level at $37. SOL has lost 21.8% of its valuation in the past seven days, making it the worst performer on our list. The downtrend was clear for Solana, and buyers appear hard to find as the price falls.
Looking ahead, SOL really needs the overall market sentiment to change and turn bullish. Otherwise, it is very hard to expect its price to recover from the recent losses. There is simply no demand at this time that can hold it from falling lower.
Our list's best performer, TRX, gained 10.2% this week on the strength of bullish fundamentals. In light of the current market, closing in the green on a weekly basis is quite an accomplishment. UST, which recently collapsed, is similar to the USDD stablecoin that keeps Tron going. To Mint USDD, burn TRX. TRX's price has increased as a result of this positive feedback loop. Further, the Terra / Luna / UST ecosystem crash has left many investors looking for a new home, and Tron may be an option. According to the price action on the daily timeframe, TRX has formed a parabola.
TRX's next key resistance level is $0.10. The last time it approached this level, sellers came in strongly, and they may again.
