The Ripple (XRP) price, which has crossed the 21-day moving average line, is in an upward correction.
The cryptocurrency asset is currently trapped between the moving average lines while trading in the bullish trend zone. On the upside, the $0.47 resistance area marked the end of the positive momentum. Since May 18, buyers have retested the resistance area four times but have been rejected each time. Further growth in the cryptocurrency is unlikely as the market moves into the overbought zone. XRP is trading for $0.46 at the time of writing.

The cost of XRP will increase and reach a peak between $0.50 and $0.55.
