• Ripple price is bounded inside an ascending triangle pattern formed on the daily chart.
  • Several indicators show the price is ready for a breakout in the short-term.

XRP price is currently at $0.253, right below a critical barrier at $0.26, which has been tested several times throughout the past two months. A breakout above this point can easily drive XRP price towards $0.30. 

XRP bulls need to crack $0.26 for good

XRP price has pierced through the critical resistance level at $0.26 several times in the past but never managed to close above it. The 100-SMA on the daily chart is also established at $0.26, adding even more strength to the level.
