Ripple price prediction: XRP/USD bulls get ready for a breakthrough - XRP confluence

  • XRP/USD stays close to the important resistance area.
  • A sustainable move above $0,2860 will create a strong upside momentum.

Ripple’s XRP took off from the Asian low of $0.2740, but the upside may be limited as the price is moving closer to a stiff resistance created by the long-term sloping trendline. At the time of writing, XRP/USD is changing hands at $0.2780, has stayed mostly unchanged both on a day-on-day basis and since the beginning of Wednesday, though the coin has six bullish days in a row, which is the longest period since May 2019.
