Ripple (XRP) analysis: No high ground in sight. $0.248 is the last stand.

XRP fails to trade above the 0.26 dollars mark despite the bulls trying to push it past the mark. This isn’t worrisome though.

The actual problem lies in the fact that yesterday’s price trend was a bad scenario but an upwards trend today isn’t helping XRP much either. Traders should consider pushing the value a little higher before pulling out of the market.

The cryptocurrency was at 0.2570 dollars earlier today and some high octane action was seen on the chart when the price jolted abruptly to 0.2577 dollars, but that is all there is to it, after the spike all that was left for the coin to do was come down tumbling like a house of cards.

The 0.2577 dollars region was not breached but the decline amounted to 0.2560 dollars which is a 0.66% decline on the standing value with a bearish attitude.

XRP remained above $0.2560 till 09:27 UTC once it fell to this mark. Thus, this has proved to be a formidable support mark but it, too broke and XRP ended up at 0.2555 dollars. The price has thus seen a rebound since then to 0.2556 dollars. The rebound occurred at 01:01:22 UTC .

The next candidate for the resistance enlistment is 0.26 dollars and if the price breaks above it too, then 0.262 dollars mark will provide resistance to XRP.
