XRP/USD: The technical picture
XRP.USD topped at $0.264 on October 22 and moved back inside the consolidation range with the upper boundary at $0.258. A sustainable move above this area is needed for the upside to gain traction. Once it happens, the bullish momentum will start snowballing and take the price to the next resistance of $0.278, followed by the pivotal long-term resistance of $0.31.

On the other hand, a failure to break above the said resistance of $0.258 will increase the bearish correction risks to the lower line of the recent consolidation channel $0.24. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off will likely gain traction with the next focus on $0.227.
