XRP/BTC 1-Day Price Chart:
Yesterday, XRP price was initially ranging between 0.42 USD to 0.43 USD. Later, it saw a sharp price surge reaching to its 30-days high price point of 0.4632 USD with a 7.89% increase. However, it gradually pulled back and is currently trading at 0.4496 USD. In the last 24 hours, XRP has shown price rise of 3.69%.
Meanwhile, instead of a sharp spike, BTC had a gradual price surge tracing an impulse wave which reached as high as 9467.26 USD. Later, Bitcoin also faced a gradual pullback and over the last 24 hours, BTC has surged to 1.64%.
The price trends of both, BTC and XRP appears to be quite bullish. Ripple is likely to trace higher price spikes if it crosses 0.455 USD and $0.460 resistance levels. Though a price drop below 0.42 USD can take it to the support levels of 0.41 USD and 0.40 USD.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin believers are expecting the BTC price to cross the 10k USD mark. However, it seems a bit far as BTC might need to head towards the target price at a rapid pace.
