Ripple price action has seen consolidation form over the past days after retracement from the $0.34 ow was seen on 12 May 2022. Resistance was found at $0.46, with retracement to $0.40 the following day, setting a consolidation area.

From there, XRP/USD moved sideways, with lower local highs set several times and the $0.40 mark tested as support. Since bears could not regain control, we saw the current local high set at $0.44 again yesterday, indicating that the market is still indecisive.

Additionally, the current test of $0.40 support shows signs of strength, likely leading back to the upside next. If Ripple price action can break above $0.44, a lot more upside can be expected over the next days. Alternatively, we could see the $0.40 support finally break down early next week.

Ripple price analysis: Conclusion 

Ripple price analysis is bullish today as the market has retested the $0.40 support and shows signs of rejection. Therefore, XRP/USD is ready to reverse and look to break higher local high later in the weekend.
