Ripple might resume the second round of upside momentum

Since May 1, Ripple’s upward move has been facing stiff resistance at the $1.70 resistance zone. Today, XRP is declining after its rejection from the resistance zone. This may cause the altcoin to decline.

On May 1, the altcoin was rejected and XRP fell and found support above the 21-day SMA. This propels the altcoin to resume an upward move. On the upside, if the bulls break the $1.70 resistance, the altcoin will rise to retest or break the $1.96 overhead resistance.

Nonetheless, if buyers breach the overhead resistance, Ripple will resume the second round of upside momentum. The market is expected to rally to the high of $4.00. Presently, the altcoin is retracing after the rejection from the recent high. If the price retraces and breaks below the 21-day SMA, the altcoin will decline to $1.0 low. Ripple is trading at $1.58 at the time of writing.
