The Ripple price is–after days and weeks of consolidation, one of the top performers gauged by last week’s activity. Adding a ballpark 12 percent against both USD and BTC, momentum appears to be shifting.
Pumping buyers’ expectations are supportive news released throughout last week.

Ripple price analysis
The Ripple price is on the roll. The coin is up against both USD and BTC. As aforementioned, it is up roughly 12 percent. The Ripple price is also up versus Ethereum (ETH).
From the daily chart, the trend is bullish. The path of least resistance, judging from candlestick arrangements seem to be up.
Bulls of July 6, 2020, have been confirmed following the sharp spike that sparked recent price gains to $0.20.
Notably, since the double-bar buy reversal pattern of July 5-6 was printed, there has been an uptick of volumes. This means the momentum is also high as the Bollinger Bands diverge.
Since prices are trending above the 20-day moving average with a high likelihood of the Ripple price trending higher, buyers should prepare for timely entries.
Ideally, every pullback to the middle BB or July 6, 2020, high is a buying opportunity. The first target should be the resistance of $0.25.
On the reverse side, sharp losses below July 6, 2020 candlestick and $0.17 nullifies this forecast.
