Looking at the hourly chart, XRP is trading in between the $0.20 and $0.2040 range. At the moment, it is about to reach the $0.2040 resistance mark as buyers are becoming more active. Thus, there is a bullish divergence on the Relative Strength Index (RSI). The trading volume is also located at the relatively medium level. This is why traders might expect to see XRP at $0.2040 by the beginning of next week.

Looking the 4H time frame, the bulls have not accumulated enough strength for a continued rise. The trading volume continues declining, which is not good for buyers. Moreover, the lines of the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) are going down, which means that the decline might continue. In this particular case, the nearest support level is located at $0.1978, which may be attained next week.

Looking at the bigger chart, XRP continues to receive support for resuming the rise; however, it is unlikely to happen as the trading volume remains relatively the same. The more likely scenario is that the growth will probably last until the coin reaches the $0.2151 mark. Besides, XRP's liquidity is low to continue the bullish wave.

At press time, XRP was trading at $0.2018.
