Ripple Price Analysis: XRP Surges Above $0.21; Targets $0.23 and $0.25

Moving Averages are on the Verge of Bullish crossover

On the daily chart, the bulls have crossed above the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA. The implication is that the coin is rising and it is in the bullish trend zone. On the upside, if the price remains sustained above EMAs, XRP upward move is guaranteed. In retrospect, the bulls have failed to penetrate the $0.30 resistance level in September and November.

This was due to a lack of buying power at a higher price level. Today, the bulls are facing resistance at $0.22 price level. On the upside, if the current retracement holds, the bulls are likely to break above the initial resistance and reach the $0.23 and $0.25 price level. Conversely, if the bulls fail to break the resistance, the market may be in a range-bound movement for a few days.
