Ripple Price Resistance
Yesterday, we saw a major decline in Ripple price from well above $0.7000 against the US Dollar. The price fell sharply and traded below the $0.6600 and $0.6000 support levels. It even broke the $0.5550 level and traded close to the $0.5000 level. A low was formed at $0.5180 from where the price started an upside correction. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9676 high to $0.5180 low.
More importantly, there was a break above yesterday’s highlighted crucial bearish trend line with resistance at $0.6100 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair traded above the $0.7000 level. However, the upside move faced a major barrier near $0.7250. The mentioned $0.7250 level was a support earlier and now it is acting as a crucial barrier. XRP also failed just below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9676 high to $0.5180 low.
The pair is once again moving lower and is currently trading below $0.7000. An initial support on the downside is at $0.6200, followed by the $0.6000 level. On the upside, a break above the $0.7250 level is needed for more gains in the near term.
