Ripple Price Technical Analysis – XRP/USD Under Pressure

Aayush Jindal | December 1, 2017 | 7:30 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price came under renewed selling pressure as it moved below $0.2500 against the US Dollar.
  • There are two key bearish trend lines forming with resistances near $0.2400 and $0.2460 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently correcting higher but struggling to break the $0.2400 and $0.2450 resistance levels.

Ripple price is under bearish pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD has to move above $0.2450 to gain bullish traction in the near term.

Ripple Price Upside Hurdle

There were a couple of downside swing moves in Ripple price below $0.2500 against the US Dollar. The price failed to hold yesterday’s swing low near $0.2308 and declined further. It traded below the $0.2300 support and tested the $0.2200 zone. A low was formed at $0.2195 from where a minor correction wave was initiated. It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2795 high to $0.2195 low.

However, the price is facing many hurdles on the upside near $0.2400 and $0.2450. The current wave faced sellers near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2795 high to $0.2195 low. Moreover, there are two key bearish trend lines forming with resistances near $0.2400 and $0.2460 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The second trend line resistance, $0.2500 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2795 high to $0.2195 low are important. These hurdles might continue to prevent gains above $0.2500 in the near term.
