Technical analysis: XRP price maintains uptrend on Monday

XRP price increases nearly 2% on the weekly time frame. The altcoin sustains above $0.63 on Monday, posting higher highs and higher lows since Friday on the 4-hour price chart. 

XRP price faces resistance at $0.6561 and $0.7025 in its path to retrace its year-to-date peak of $0.7440 from March 11. These two resistance levels represent the 50% and 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the decline from the March 11 top of $0.7440 to the March 20 low of $0.5681. 

If the uptrend is sustained, XRP price could climb beyond the year-to-date peak and attempt to fill the Fair Value Gap (FVG) between $0.7527 and $0.7609 on the 4-hour time frame.
