Ripple Price Range Support

After trading close to the $0.7000 level, Ripple price faced selling interest against the US Dollar. The price started a downside correction and traded below the $0.6800 and $0.6600 support levels. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.6240 low to $0.6995 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $0.6400 support.

A low was formed at $0.6368 before the price moved back above $0.6500. It is currently trading above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.6971 high to $0.6368 low. In the short term, there could be more range moves above the $0.6200 pivot level before buyers take control.

On the upside, a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.6971 high to $0.6368 low may push the price towards $0.6900.
