Ripple’s controversial XRP token has momentously broken above its daily 200 moving average for the first time since February as it begins to coil up ahead of a major move to the upside.
XRP’s market cap is now just shy of $10 billion with each token being valued at $0.221. There is still a level of resistance at $0.2279, which is the local high from April.
If it can piggyback off the momentum from Bitcoin’s recent rally and break above $0.2279 it is expected to reach $0.2469 in the short term.
However, it’s worth noting that XRP has only traded above the daily 200MA for just three weeks out of the past 55, which means that a break down in price may also be on the cards unless the surge is sustained by consistent trade volume.
Breaking back below the 200MA would indicate a lack of maturity in the current market structure, which would bring downside price targets of $0.200 and $0.172 back into the realms of possibility.
Much of XRP’s upcoming trajectory will depend on that of Bitcoin, which is in the midst of a jaw-dropping rally from $9,150 to more than $11,000 within the space of a volatile week.
If Bitcoin can begin to make ground towards the $12,400 level of resistance, tokens like XRP could well follow in the coming weeks if the world’s largest cryptocurrency enters a period of consolidation.
