XRP looks for more upside
On the daily chart, Ripple’s (XRP) price has shown a healthy retracement after making the swing highs near $0.91. The reason we are calling it healthy is that it is part of a bullish reversal pattern ‘Cup & Handle’.
XRP price had dropped 49% from the highs of $1.08 made on December 23. Furthermore, the downside has been paused as the price consolidates in late January holding near $0.55. Investors rallied almost 65% since then defying the previous downtrend.
Currently, the price action is hovering in the range of $0.75 and $0.91, XRP bulls are gathering the pace near the lower range of the consolidation to break the upper trading range. The basis of our assumption is the formation of the green candle following the previous day’s red candlestick.
XRP has to take out three hurdles, the first is placed at the $0.87 horizontal resistance line followed by the highs of December 27 at $0.96. The final upside target could be found at $1.0.
On the other hand, if the price fails to sustain the session’s lows then the price could retreat toward $0.70.
