Ripple (XRP) price analysis
Ripple (XRP) is feeling bullish in a cryptocurrency market that is pushing to recover from the lows that were recorded in the previous week. The entire crypto market had been submerging in selling pressure due to speculation emanating due to regulations from authorities. XRP/USD even traded December 2017 lows of $5.4. The price, however, found support at this level and embarked on an uptrend momentum that saw it exchange hands at highs of $0.72. Ripple has been trading in lock-step during Monday trading, although it made considerable gains of about $1.4.
At the momentum, XRP/USD is trading above the near-term 50-simple moving average which is crisscrossing the longer term 100-simple moving average trendline at $0.65. This shows that Ripple price will consolidate closer to this level if the bulls lose their grip in the market. Both of the trend indicators are, however, in an upside sloping direction to confirm the uptrend. Currently, Ripple price is forming a bearish trend at $0.70. The immediate support level for Ripple (XRP) is at $0.66.
The price broke above the 50% Fib retracement level with the previous swing high of $0.82 and a low of $0.54. The retracement is now acting as a short-term support level. The upside gains have been capped below the 61.8% Fib retracement level with the last high at $0.82 and a low $0.54. Significantly, this is a critical hurdle in the path of recovery towards $0.72. For XRP/USD to experience further gains, the price must break above this level which could then see the price head closer to $0.82.
