Ripple Price Upside Move
There was a fresh upside move initiated in Ripple price from the $0.7000 swing low against the US Dollar. The price succeeded in breaking many resistances such as $0.7500 and $0.8000. To start with, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.8400 high to $0.6770 low. It opened the doors for more gains above $0.7500.
More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted short-term bearish trend line with resistance at $0.7200 was broken on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair traded above the $0.8500 level and posted a new high at $0.9009. It seems like the current uptrend is far from over and the price might continue higher above $0.9000. An initial support is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.6500 low to $0.9009 high. Any major downside move should be limited by the $0.8000 level. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.6500 low to $0.9009 high is at $0.7760 to act as a support.
On the upside, a break above the $0.9000 handle would call for a test of the $1.00 handle in the near term.
