Ripple Price Trend

There was a strong upside move noted in Ripple price from the $0.7000 swing low against the US Dollar. The price moved sharply higher and cleared many sell zones on the way up such as $0.7500 and $0.8000. It even moved above the $0.8500 level and traded to a new monthly high at $0.8629. Later, the price faced a tiny resistance around $0.8600, which resulted in the start of a downside correction.

It is currently trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last upside wave from the $0.7010 low to $0.8629 high. However, there are many supports on the downside near the $0.8000 level.
