XRP/USD: Can bulls maintain the ongoing growth to $0.25?
XRP is the first coin from the top 3 list that has already started its correction after yesterday's rally. The price of this crypto has dropped 2.17% over the past 24 hours. However, the rise over the past week has amounted to 14%.
On the 4H chart, the current decline is considered a correction of the sharp growth but not the start of a bearish short-term trend. XRP continues trading above the $0.21 level, confirming the bulls' pressure. Moreover, the lines of the Bollinger Bands indicator are moving up.
Summing up, buyers need 'fuel' to push the rate higher. In this case, a more likely scenario is consolidation in the range between $0.2150 and $0.22 within the next days.
Yesterday, the XRP price broke through the resistance of the two-day moving average EMA200, and at night it set the April high at $0.236. Today, a breakthrough of the upper trend line is possible, but after the hype gradually fades, the pair might return to the green ascending corridor.
XRP is trading at $0.2159 at press time.
