XRP (XRP) Price Trend and Analysis
Over the past couple of days, XRP has been trading over the 43 cents mark against the US dollar. The digital currency made a couple of attempts to break over the hurdle at the 46 cents and 47 cents mark, but it couldn’t succeed.
Presently, the digital currency is consolidating over the 45 cents mark and its likely gathering momentum for the next upward move. For buyers to be in charge of the market once again, a close over the 47 cents resistance level is a must. An immediate resistance is close to the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $0.4690 to the low of $0.4437.
There is also a formation of a short-term contracting triangle with hurdle close to the $0.4560 mark on the one-hour chart of XRP. A break over the immediate resistance could push the value of the digital currency towards the 47 cents hurdle point.
From the chart of XRP/USD, the digital currency may continue to change hands in a range beneath the 47 cents resistance level for the next couple of sessions. Over the 47 cents mark, the digital currency could surge higher towards the 50 cents and 55 cents mark.
