Key Highlights

  • There is a contracting triangle forming with support at $0.2300 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair might make an upside move above $0.2400 as long as it is above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ripple price remains well supported against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD might soon clear the $0.2400 resistance for more gains.

Ripple Price Trend

There was no major move in Ripple price either above $0.2400 or below $0.2200 during the weekend against the US Dollar. However, the price remained well supported above the $0.2200 level. It recently traded close to the $0.2500 level from where a correction was initiated. It moved below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2050 low to $0.2489 high.

The downside move was protected by the $0.2200 support. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2050 low to $0.2489 high also prevented declines. At the moment, the price is now above the $0.2300 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. These are positive signs and it seems like there is a contracting triangle forming with support at $0.2300 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is slowly approaching towards the next break either above $0.2400 or below $0.2300.
