Ripple Price Upside Surge
The past session was excellent for Ripple price as it moved above the $0.2150 resistance against the US Dollar. Yesterday, we discussed that buyers need to gain momentum above $0.2100. There was a nice upside momentum formed and the price was able to break bother $0.2100 and $0.2150. The upside move was such that the price cleared the $0.2200 handle and traded as high as $0.2251.
It seems like the current wave is not over yet and the price might break $0.2250 soon to test $0.2300. If there is a correction, an initial support is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2020 low to $0.2251 high. However, the most important support is near $0.2150. It was a resistance earlier, and now buyers are likely to take a stand near $0.2150. Moreover, there are two connecting bullish trend lines forming with support at $0.2100 and $0.2010 on the hourly chart of XRP/USD.
Overall, there are many bullish signs above $0.2150 and the price is likely to extend gains. The next major hurdle is near $0.2300 followed by the $0.2400 handle.
