Ripple Price Upside Move

There are decent bullish signs above $0.9500 in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price started a slow and steady rise from the $0.9190 low and moved above the $0.9500 and $1.0000 resistance.

It cleared the path for more gains and the price was able to move above the $1.05 resistance.

It recently tested the $1.09 and $1.10 resistance levels where the upside move paused. The main reason was the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.1755 high to $0.8398 low. Buyers failed to push the price above the $1.10 and later a consolidation phase was initiated. It seems like there is an ascending channel forming with support at $1.0000 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
