Ripple price is slowly moving higher against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD looks set to gain upside momentum once there is a break above the $1.0000 level.

Ripple Price Support

After trading above the $1.1700 level, Ripple price faced sellers and started a downside move against the US Dollar. The price declined and traded below the $1.0000 and $0.9000 support levels. The decline was substantial, but the $0.8400 area managed to act as a strong support. XRP found bids near $0.8400 and $0.8500, and later it started an upside move.

There was a break above a bearish trend line with resistance at $0.9200 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.1755 high to $0.8398 low. At the moment, the price is trading just around the $1.0000 level and is currently facing resistance. Once there is a break above the $1.0000 level, there could be more gains. An intermediate resistance could be the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.1755 high to $0.8398 low at $1.0076.

    My frustration with Ripple is that when they announce new partnerships they are usually all under xCurrent which doesn’t use XRP while xRapid does use XRP. I wish they would be more forthcoming in detailing exactly what protocol each new partnership agreement is signing up to use.
