Ripple Price Testing Key Resistance
In the past few days, there was a steady rise in ripple above the $0.2450 resistance level. XRP settled above the $0.2500 resistance level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) to move into a positive zone.

An initial support is near the $0.2555 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2405 low to $0.2601 high. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near $0.2550 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The next major support is near the $0.2500 level. The mentioned support coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2405 low to $0.2601 high.
On the upside, the $0.2590 and $0.2600 levels are major hurdles. A successful close above the $0.2600 resistance could open the doors for a fresh rally. The next major resistance for the bulls might be near the $0.2680 and $0.2700 levels.
Dips Likely To Be Supported in XRP
