Ripple Price Analysis

XRP is up roughly nine percent in the previous trading week as bulls flow back in a breakout formation. Changing hands at $0.40, the coin has surged roughly 40 percent from 2022 lows.

Notably, the bullish bar of July 30 is with high trading volumes, breaking above a multi-week $0.10 trade range.

As buyers flow back, traders should look for entries on every dip above $0.38 since there has been confirmation of the breakout bar of July 30. Per the candlestick arrangement in the daily chart, the first buy target lies at $0.45, and later January 2022 lows at around $0.58.
