Ripple upward move is facing rejection at the $0.48 level

Today, there is a price spike as XRP rallied to $0.52 high after breaking the resistance line of the descending channel. Soon after reaching the recent high, the price plunged back to the channel.

The upward move is now facing rejection at the $0.48 price level. In today’s price action the candlestick is displaying a long wick. The long wick is indicating that XRP has strong selling pressure at a higher price level. 

The upward move is doubtful except there are sufficient buyers at higher price levels. Nonetheless, the altcoin upward move has been restricted between $0.43 and $0.50 since the February 23 breakdown. On the upside, if the bulls break the $0.50 overhead resistance, buyers are likely to come in to push prices upward. In other words, the next target price of $0.65 is achievable. Conversely, if the bears have the upper hand and break the $0.43 support, the altcoin will further decline to $0.35 low.
