However, the price is facing hurdles near the $0.2195 and $0.2200 levels. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $0.2195 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Above the triangle resistance, the next resistance could be $0.2210.
The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2252 swing high to $0.2135 swing low might also prevent upsides near $0.2208.
