Ripple Price Rise
There was a positive development in Ripple price from the $0.9000 swing low against the US Dollar. The price tested the $0.9100 and $0.9000 support levels on a couple of occasions. However, sellers failed to push the price below $0.9000, which prompted an upside move. It seems like there is a major support base forming above $0.9000, which could increase bullish pressure in the near term.
Earlier, there was a dip below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.8398 low to $1.0268 high. However, the downside move was limited by $0.9100. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.8398 low to $1.0268 high also acted as a support. An upside move in underway, and the XRP/USD pair is making an attempt to push the price above a bearish trend line at $0.9550 on the hourly chart. Should there be a close above $0.9600 and $0.9800, the price could move above $1.0000.
Above $1.0000, it has to break the $1.0265 high to rise further. The overall bias is positive as long as the price is above the $0.9100 and $0.9000 support levels.
