• Ripple price seems to be embracing consolidation between $0.19 and $0.20 ahead of a breakout towards $0.25.
  • The ninth-largest bank in UAE has launched a new payments corridor with a Bangladesh bank utilizing Ripple’s blockchain solution.

The cryptocurrency market is in a dull state following the non-eventful Bitcoin halving. The pomp and dance that was expected left investors without joy as the price action remained stable. Ripple price has also taken the slow approach and is currently in consolidation within a range; $0.19 (initial support) and $0.20 (first resistance).

The price is holding at the Bollinger Band middle curve following a minor recovery from the previous week’s low at $0.1750. The prevailing sideways price action is likely to last longer with the RSI lethargic horizontal movement marginally under 50 (average). However, the recovery from levels slightly under 30 (oversold) clearly shows that buyers are relatively in control.

Conforming that buyers are in driver’s seat is the MACD’s upward roll from weekend lows at -0.00623. A bullish divergence from the MACD shows that bulls have an upper. They only lack a catalyst to catapult XRP above the critical $0.20 level and allow the focus to shift to higher levels; $0.25 and $0.30 respectively.
