XRP rally to the upside

Yesterday, the price of Ripple (XRP) was on the verge of falling below $0.38 support, but the bulls fought back. Sellers intended to push XRP to the previous low at $0.33.

Nonetheless, the long tail of the May 12 candles suggests that the previous low at $0.33 indicates strong buying at lower levels. Today, the altcoin rallied above the $0.38 support. Should XRP rally to the upside, the altcoin is likely to encounter resistance at the high of $0.46 or the 21-day moving average. Nonetheless, XRP will rally to the high of $0.65 if it clears the first hurdle at $0.46. Conversely, if the upward movement fails, the bears will try to push the cryptocurrency below the support of $0.38. Otherwise, the movement will remain in the range between $0.38 and $0.46. At the time of writing, XRP/USD is trading at $0.39.
