Aayush Jindal | July 30, 2018 | 6:30 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is trading in a range above the $0.4300 support area against the US dollar.
  • There is a short-term contracting triangle formed with resistance near $0.4560 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair could accelerate gains once it breaks the $0.4600 and $0.4700 resistance levels in the near term.

Ripple price is briefly consolidating in a range against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD could explode once the current consolidation phase is over.

Ripple Price Resistances

During the past few days, Ripple price mostly traded in a range above the $0.4300 level against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair made a few attempts to break the $0.4600 and $0.4700 resistance levels, but it failed. At the moment, it is consolidating above the $0.4400 level and is likely preparing for the next move. A successful close above the $0.4700 hurdle is must for ripple buyers to take control.

An initial resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.4690 high to $0.4437 low. There is also a short-term contracting triangle formed with resistance near $0.4560 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The triangle resistance at $0.4560 is positioned near the 100 hourly simple moving average. A break above this could push the price towards the $0.4700 resistance. An intermediate resistance is the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.4690 high to $0.4437 low.
