Ripple Market Cap

Technical Analysis

The coin took a huge leap in the initial week to cross $1.20 mark for the first time. But an immediate pullback followed this rise and the price dropped below $0.77. Though the price was quick enough to recover, it faced stiff resistance above $1.05. In the midweek, the coin took a downturn again. $0.84 acted as support and also as a pivot to initiate a gradual bullish run.

Ripple graph

Though the coin moved sideways for a while in the narrow band between $1.02 and $0.97, currently with another leap, the price reached above $1.10.

With the recent jump in the prices, the Fibonacci retracement has reached above 23.6 percent. 100 SMA is still above 200 SMA indicating an upward least resistance. This also indicates the possibility of a further rise in the price.
