Ripple Price Trend

There was no respite for buyers as Ripple price extended its decline from the $1.2000 swing high against the US Dollar. After a minor correction towards the $1.50 level and the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2.08 high to $1.49 low, the price faced sellers. It started a fresh downside wave and broke the $1.49 low and the $1.20 support. The decline was strong as sellers pushed the price below the $1.00 support. It traded close to the $0.8000 level.

A low was formed at $0.8399 from where an upside correction was initiated. It recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.9027 high to $0.8399 low. However, there are many resistances on the upside such as $1.35 and $1.50. An initial hurdle is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.9027 high to $0.8399 low at $1.3713. Above this last, there a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1.50 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
