Ripple Price Decline

There was no recovery above $1.00 yesterday in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price extended declines and moved below a major support area near $0.9400. The decline was substantial as the price closed below the $0.9200 support as well. There was even a close below the 100 hourly simple moving average and the price traded as low as $0.8928.

During the downside move, yesterday’s short-term connecting bullish trend line with support at $0.9400 was broken on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. It opened the doors for more gains and the price is now at a risk of more declined below $0.8900. An initial resistance on the upside is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9802 high to $0.8928 low.
