XRP/USD Daily Chart: Bullish
XRP/USD Daily Chart
XRP rallied to highs of $0.6495 on Feb. 11 before it met significant resistance. The bulls must now try to push the XRP price past $0.6495 to continue the uptrend. Above this level, the first major resistance level is at $0.7707. Once this is surmounted, the XRP/USD pair may pick up pace and rally to $1. The RSI in the overbought zone seems to suggest bulls have the upper hand.
On the contrary, if the bulls are unable to thrust price above the barrier at $0.6495, XRP may revisit support at $0.5323. XRP bullish outlook will invalidate if the price plunges below $0.50. In this case, XRP may be forced to seek the next buyer congestion zone at around $0.33 situated at the MA 50.

XRP/USD 4-Hour Chart
XRP breached above the resistance at $0.5474 to extend its bullish leg higher. The token met resistance at $0.6475 plunging to lows of $0.5330 before the bulls stepped in. Despite this, bulls have their gaze fixated on $1, but they must bring down the resistance at $0.6475 and then $0.7640.
On the flipside, barring an extended sell-off, Ripple’s XRP should steer clear of sub $0.60 levels. In this scenario, the most critical support sits at the MA 50 ($0.4928). The support at $0.3599 coinciding with the MA 200 may serve to counter further selling pressure. The XRP/USD pair is only bullish while trading above the $0.5 mark, key resistance is found at the $0.65 and 0.77 levels.
