XRP/USD: Ripple Must Break 200-days EMA To Push Higher

XRP broke the strong resistance at $0.2 over the past 7-days of trading. It went on to spike as high as $0.25. However, the coin is struggling to close above the resistance at $0.228 (200-days EMA). Each time the coin attempted to close above $0.228, it failed to do so.

Nevertheless, the break above $0.20 turned XRP bullish, but for the cryptocurrency to push higher, it must close above this resistance.
