Ripple is making an upward move as price approaches the high of $0.31. Today, XRP is trading at $0.29 at the time of writing.
Since January 27, the upward move has been consistent as bulls “buy the dips”. The bottom line is that XRP lacks buyers at higher price levels and the crypto has been compelled to a sideways move in January.
For instance, Since January 12, Ripple has been fluctuating between $0.25 and $0.31. The bulls have failed to cross over the $0.31 price level because of buying power. Today, XRP is moving upward and if the bulls sustain the bullish momentum, a break above $0.31 is likely. This will offer an opportunity for the coin to rally above the $0.38 high. Otherwise, the coin will continue to fluctuate between $0.25 and $0.31.
