- Ripple price extends action above $0.23 for the first time since the crash mid-March.
- XRP/USD is only a few mild bumps from taking down the resistance at $0.25 and focusing on $0.30.
Ripple has for the first time in April achieved highs of $0.2357. The fight in the last six weeks has concentrated on coming out of the ‘crypt’ the price fell into amid the COVID-19-triggered crash in both the digital asset market and the traditional markets. While the recovery was not rapid in the first five weeks, the progress made this week has been tremendous.
The break above $0.20 level on Tuesday was the green light investors needed to increase their entries and positions in XRP. The last 48 hours have seen Ripple surge to highs above $0.23. At the moment, the price is flirting with the confluence formed by the 50% Fibonacci level of the last swing high at $0.3468 to a swing low at $0.11 and the 200-day SMA. Buyers have their eyes on $0.24 (short term resistance) but trading above $0.25 is key to changing the focus to $0.30. All technical indicators including the MACD and the RSI cement the buyers’ growing influence over the XRP/USD.
