Ripple is in the bullish trend zone

Ripple (XRP) has been in an uptrend for the past three days, but has been forced to move sideways. Currently, the cryptocurrency has been trading between $1.10 and $1.14 since October 13.

Today, the XRP price is trading at $1.13 below its recent high. There is a tendency for the market to rise as XRP is in the bullish trend zone. If the bulls push XRP above the $1.14 resistance, XRP/USD will rise to a high of $1.20. The bullish momentum will extend to the previous high of $1.40. If buyers fail to break the recent high, Ripple will continue to hover between $1.10 and $1.14 for a few more days.

Ripple's price bars are above the 21-day line SMA and the 50-day line SMA, indicating a possible upward movement of the cryptocurrency. This has been confirmed as XRP is at level 57 on the Relative Strength Index for period 14. This means that XRP is in an uptrend and has room to move higher. Currently, the market is above the 70% area of the daily stochastic. This means XRP is in a bullish momentum.

Meanwhile, the uptrend from October 14 has a candle body testing the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. The retracement suggests that the XRP price is likely to rise to the Fibonacci extension level of 1.618 or $1.18.
