Ripple Price Support
It seems like Ripple price is forming a decent support base above $0.2150 against the US Dollar. The price even settled above the $0.2180 level and recently traded as high as $0.2240. After trading near $0.2240, the price started a downside correction and traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2000 low to $0.2240 high.
The downside move was limited since the $0.2120 support held losses. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2000 low to $0.2240 high acted as a major support. It seems like there is a new connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $0.2180 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is following the trend line and is currently placed above the $0.2200 level. It might soon gain pace and attempt an upside break above the $0.2250 level in the near term.
The next upside hurdle is near $0.2300 where sellers might appear. On the downside, the $0.2150 support is important along with the trend line. Only a close below $0.2120 would call for a test of the next support at $0.2000.
