Ripple price prediction: XRP/USD capped by the long-term trendline - XRP confluence

  • XRP/USD stays below the key barrier created by a trendline.
  • A sustainable move above $0.2860 will create a strong upside momentum.

Ripple’s XRP has been range-bound with bearish bias recently. The third digital asset with the current market value of $11.9 billion retreated to the area below $0.2800 after a failed attempt to break above the long-term sloping trend line (currently at $0.2810). At the time of writing, XRP/USD is changing hands at $0.2770, down 1.4% from this time on Wednesday and unchanged on a day-on-day basis.

Looking technically, a strong resistance created by the trendline may lin=mit the recovery and push the price inside of the triangle. In this case, the coin will continue moving with a bearish bias towards the lower line of the said triangle pattern (currently at $0.2560) Let’s have a closer look at the technical levels that may serve as resistance and support areas for the coin.

Resistance levels

$0,2860 - 61.8% Fibo retracement monthly, 23.6 Fibo retracement daily, the long-term trendline;
