Ripple price action has seen consolidation continue over the past week and the $0.40 support. Slightly lower highs were set along the way, forming a descending triangle consolidation pattern.

However, XRP/USD trades in a very narrow range right now, indicating that a break to either side could soon follow. Considering the $0.40 support holding the market from further downside over the last 24 hours, a push higher should follow.

Therefore, if Ripple price action can push slightly higher over the next hours, we could quickly see a spike to $0.46 local major resistance. If it is broken, the market will turn even bullish for next week.

Ripple price analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bullish as consolidation slowly turns into upwards momentum. Therefore, XRP/USD should see another local push higher, potentially to the $0.46 major resistance.
