Ripple might attain a high of $2.50

Following its recovery above the $1.00 support, Ripple has been in an upward move. Since May 1, XRP upward moves have been stalled below the $1.70 resistance zone. Buyers have not been able to sustain the bullish momentum above the recent high.

For the past week, Ripple is now in a range-bound movement below the $1.70 resistance level. If buyers push XRP above the resistance level, a retest at the $1.96 overhead resistance is likely. More so, if the bullish momentum is sustained above the overhead resistance, Ripple will attain a high of $2.50. However, if buyers fail to breach the $1.70 resistance level, the market will continue its range-bound movement below the recent high. XRP/USD is trading at $1.67 at the time of writing.
