XRP whales are increasingly accumulating XRP after the price of the cryptocurrency broke above the price level maintained for a couple of months.
XRP Surpasses Multi-Month Resistance Barrier
Ripple’s digital token XRP is back in the green after months of trending below $0.2 price level. The digital currency broke above the 50-three-day moving average on 17th July 2020. Since then, the price of XRP has been on the increase.
XRP hit a high of $0.25, which indicates that the digital currency is now up nearly 29% over the past two weeks to aim new yearly highs.
Additionally, the third-largest cryptocurrency has managed to turn its 100-three-day moving average into support within the same time interval. The fact that it was able to move past this challenging hurdle suggests that XRP could surge further to aim the next resistance barrier represented by the 200-three-day moving average. At the moment, the resistance level of the digital currency stands at $0.28.
In the course of XRP’s stay below its resistance barrier, XRP enthusiasts remained optimistic that its price would eventually breakout. And data has also revealed that big investors have been in accumulation spree over the past two weeks. The continuation of this positive trend could push the digital token to higher highs.
