Ripple’s XRP Price Eyes Fresh Rally

The triangle resistance near $1.50 holds the key. The next hurdle could be $1.56. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1.97 high to $1.162 swing low.

A successful break above the triangle resistance and then $1.56 could set the pace for a fresh surge. In this case, the price could even rally above the $1.65 and $1.70 levels.

Dips Limited in XRP?

If ripple fails to clear the $1.5000 resistance or $1.560, it could correct further lower. An initial support on the downside is near the $1.3200 level and the 100 SMA.

The next major support is near the $1.28 level and the triangle lower trend line. Any more losses might call for a drop towards the $1.15 support zone in the coming sessions.
