Ripple Price Technical Analysis – XRP/USD is Facing Significant Resistance

Aayush Jindal | April 2, 2018 | 6:30 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is currently correcting higher, but it is facing a significant hurdle near $0.4900 against the US dollar.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance around the $0.4900 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair has to move above the trend line resistance and $0.5000 to continue moving higher.

Ripple price struggle to recover higher continues against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD may decline once again if it fails to move past the $0.5000 resistance.

Ripple Price Upside Hurdle

There were further declines in Ripple price from well above the $0.6000 level against the US Dollar. The price declined and broke the $0.5500 and $0.5000 support levels. The downside move was strong and the price traded as low as $0.4496 recently. Later, it found bids and started an upside move above the $0.4500 level. It traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5188 high to $0.4496 low.

However, the upside move was protected by a major barrier near the $0.4850-0.4900 zone. There is also a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance around the $0.4900 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5188 high to $0.4496 low also acted as a barrier for more gains. It seems like the price is struggling to move above the $0.4900 level. Further above, the $0.5000 resistance is the next barrier for buyers.
