Ripple (XRP) Hovers Above $0.23, Attempts to Break More Resistance Levels

Ripple (XRP) upward move commenced after the bulls break above the EMAs on January 5. In the first bullish impulse, the market reached a high of $0.22. The price could not be sustained and the cryptocurrency dropped to a low of $0.20. The bulls recoup and make another positive movement to the previous highs. XRP reaches an impressive high of $0.24 but after fluctuations, the coin finds support at $0.22.

Interestingly, XRP traded and the bulls took the price to a high of $0.25. Unfortunately, buyers fail to hold on to the price at a higher price level. The ability to hold and sustain the price at $0.25 should have taken XRP out of the downtrend zone. Nonetheless, the coin fell to the low above $0.23 and resumed fluctuations above the current price level. XRP is likely to repeat its upward move to retest the resistance at $0.25. Besides, XRP is still trading in the bullish trend.
