Ripple Price Technical Analysis – Can XRP/USD Recover?

Aayush Jindal | April 26, 2018 | 5:28 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price declined from the $0.9640 swing high and broke the $0.8500 support against the US dollar.
  • There is a short-term connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.8080 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair must break the $0.8080 and $0.8150 resistance levels to move back in a positive zone.

Ripple price broke a few key supports against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD has to clear the $0.8150 hurdle to start a fresh upside move in the near term.

Ripple Price Resistance

There was a downside reaction in Ripple price from well above $0.9500 against the US Dollar. The price started a new decline and broke the $0.8800 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The decline was such that the price even broke the $0.8500 support and the $0.8400 pivot level. XRP sellers gained traction and the price declined below a major support at $0.8080.

It is now trading well below $0.8400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $0.7576 recently and is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.9637 high to $0.7576 low. Moreover, there is a short-term connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.8080 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. A break above the trend line resistance at $0.8080 could open the doors for more gains. However, a proper break above $0.8150 is needed for a convincing move into a positive zone.
