Yesterday’s highlighted monster contracting triangle pattern with current support near $0.7700 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken). The pair seems to be struggling to gain momentum above $0.8000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ripple Price Range

There was no upside action above $0.8000 in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price is currently trading in a range and is preparing for the next move above $0.8000. The recent low was formed at $0.7630 form where the price started rising slowly. It is currently trading near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.8300 high to $0.7630 swing low.

However, there are many barriers on the upside around the $0.8000 and $0.8200 levels. First, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.8300 high to $0.7630 swing low is near $0.8000. Moreover, the stated $0.8000 is just around the 100 hourly simple moving average. Therefore, the $0.8000 level is a major resistance. A break above the stated $0.8000 resistance could clear the way for more gains. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted monster contracting triangle pattern with current support near $0.7700 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
