Ripple appears to have renewed the uptrend following the flash drop from $1.6 to $1.2. Overhead pressure seems to be diminishing as bulls take control. Several hurdles have already been overcome, whereby XRP currently trades at $1.52.
Ripple’s slightest resistance path is upward
The cross-border money transfer token is immediately supported by the 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA). Other key support levels include the 200 SMA, $1.4, and $1.2. As long as support areas remain intact, bulls will have ample time to focus on building the bullish momentum toward $2.
Meanwhile, Ripple’s immediate upside is limited by the 50 SMA. A confirmed break above this level is needed to reinforce the upswing eyeing levels above $1.6.
Various technical levels have aligned for an upswing to $2. For instance, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) shines a light on an improving bullish grip. Following the dip to the oversold region, the RSI recovered above the midline and imminently headed to the overbought area. XRP has enough room for growth because it is nowhere near overbought conditions.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) hints at the ongoing uptrend pulling to higher levels. This bullish impulse has come into the picture as the indicator begins recovering from the negative region.
Investors are likely to increase their positions in Ripple if the MACD line (blue) crosses and sustains a divergence past the signal line. Moreover, it is a massive bullish signal when the MACD strikes above the mean line (0.00).
