Ripple Price Upside Hurdle

Yesterday, we saw the start of a new downside wave in Ripple price from well above $2.80 against the US Dollar. The price recovered once above the $2.20 level. However, the upside move was capped by the $2.50 level. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2.82 high to $1.60 low also acted as a hurdle. A new downside wave was initiated and the price moved below the $2.20 level.

There was also break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1.60 low to $2.58 high. At the moment, the price is below $2.00 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the price may extend declines and it could even test the $1.70 level in the short term. On the upside, an initial resistance is at $2.10. Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with current resistance at $2.25 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
