After a protracted consolidation in the range of $0.68 to $0.87, Ripple is on the verge of a long-term breakout on the daily chart.
There is one important resistance though at $0.88 and that will be its final hurdle before glory. Weight of evidence suggests that this level might be taken out in near future because the sector leader Bitcoin has already gone past its own corresponding resistance level at $45,000 (currently trading at $46,900).
So, there is no reason Ripple cannot follow through. In the short term, $0.822 is the support for Ripple and if it stays above that, the potential for upside remains alive.
Support: $15, $14, $13.4
Resistance: $18, $20
