This week, there was a strong uptrend in ripple above the $0.2000 resistance. Yesterday’s XRP price fueled bitcoin and it rallied more than 15% to test the $9,000 resistance level today.
XRP price is following a nice uptrend and it recently surged above the $0.2200 and $0.2300 resistance levels. The bulls even pushed the price towards the $0.2350 resistance, with a strong close above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
A new monthly high is formed near $0.2356 and the price is currently consolidating gains. An initial support is near the $0.2285 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $0.2051 swing low to $0.2356 high.
Moreover, there is a key bullish trend line forming with support near $0.2280 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. If ripple fails to stay above the $0.2280 support level, there could be an extended decline.
The next major support is seen near the $0.2200 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $0.2051 swing low to $0.2356 high. Any further losses could lead the price towards the $0.2120 support or even 100 hourly simple moving average.
Ripple is clearly trading in a strong uptrend above the $0.2280 support area. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.2350 level.
If there is a clear break above the $0.2350 resistance and the $0.2356 high, the price could continue to rise towards the $0.2500 resistance. The next major hurdle above $0.2500 is near the $0.2600 level.
