The price of Ripple (XRP) has been consolidating below the $1.20 resistance level. Today, XRP is trading at $1.12 as of press time.
Over the past five days, price action has been stagnant due to the emergence of small body candlesticks called doji and spinning tops. These candlesticks indicate that buyers and sellers are undecided about the direction of the market. Neither buyers nor sellers are driving prices up or down. However, buyers have an advantage over sellers as Ripple is trading in the bullish trend zone. If buyers break through resistance at $1.20, Ripple's price action will accelerate. XRP/USD will regain the previous high of $1.41.
XRP is at level 54 of the Relative Strength Index of period 14. The cryptocurrency is in the bullish trend zone and is vulnerable to further upward movement. Currently, the 21-day line SMA and the 50-day line SMA are horizontally sloping, indicating a sideways movement. Ripple will move out of the range-bound movement when the price breaks the resistance line of the horizontal channel and closes above it.
Major Resistance Levels - $1.95 and $2.0
Major Support Levels - $0.80 and $0.60
On the 1-hour chart, the XRP price is trading marginally as the price breaks above the moving averages. The cryptocurrency has tested resistance at $1.13 twice and retreated. Meanwhile, the uptrend from October 26 has shown a candle body testing the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level.
