Ripple Price Technical Analysis – XRP/USD Attempting Downside

Aayush Jindal | October 4, 2017 | 5:08 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is struggling to hold the bullish bias above $0.2000 against the US Dollar.
  • The XRP/USD pair recently made an attempt to break this week’s pointed bullish trend line with current support at $0.2030 on the hourly chart (data source from Kraken).
  • The price might break the $0.2000 support in the near term before bouncing again.

Ripple price is struggling to gain pace against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD might correct lower towards $0.1950 before moving back up.

Ripple Price Correction Possible

It seems like Ripple price is not able to gain upside momentum above $0.2100 against the US Dollar. The price recently declined and broke the $0.2000 level before recovering. However, during the downside move, the price cracked the 100 hourly simple moving average at $0.2010. It is currently back above the 100 hourly SMA, but lacking pace and might break $0.2000 once again.

Moreover, the XRP/USD pair also made an attempt to clear this week’s pointed bullish trend line with current support at $0.2030 on the hourly chart. At the moment, the pair is just above the trend line support at $0.2030 and the 100 hourly SMA. Once there is a break and close below $0.2000, there can be a downside push towards $0.1950. An immediate support sits around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.1880 low to $0.2093 high.
