Ripple Price Uptrend
We saw a couple of bullish swings in Ripple price recently above $0.2000 against the US Dollar. The price is currently placed well in the bullish zone above the $0.2000 handle. The most important aspect is the fact that the price is currently well above the 100 hourly simple moving average and $0.2000. It has recovered well from the $0.1880 low and already above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.2148 high to $0.1880 low.
Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted major bullish trend line with current support at $0.0.2010 on the hourly chart of XRP/USD is a strong support. As long as the pair is above $0.2000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average, it remains in the bullish zone. On the upside, a break above the $0.2100 is needed for buyers to gain momentum. There is now a connecting resistance trend line forming with current barrier at $0.2110.
Once there is a close above $0.2100 followed by $0.2110, the next stop could be $0.2150. Overall, buying dips remain a good option above $0.2000 for further gains. A close below $0.2000 could push the price back towards $0.1850.
