• XRP/USD stuck in a tight range amid a lack of momentum. 
  • Important support is created by a psychological $0.1600. 

Ripple (XRP) has been range-bound recently. The third-largest coin settled above $0.1700, which is a good signal, but the further upside seems to be limited so far. XRP/USD hit the intraday high at $0.1752 before retreating to $0.1727 by press time. Ripple's total market capitalization is registered at $7.6 billion, while an average daily trading volume reached $2.0 billion.

There are a lot of strong technical barriers clustered both above and below the current price. It means XRP may continue oscillating in a tight range for the time being. However, the way to the North looks like a path of least resistance at this stage.
