Key Highlights

  • Ripple price declined sharply and broke the $0.65 and $0.62 support levels against the US dollar.
  • There was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $0.66 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair may decline further if it fails to hold the $0.55 support area in the near term.

Ripple price crashed and broke many supports against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD could accelerate declines if buyers fail to defend $0.55.

Ripple Price Decline

During the past few hours, there was a sharp downside move from well above $0.68 in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price broke down and cleared many supports on the way down such as $0.6500 and $0.6200. There was also a break below the $0.6000 handle, which opened the doors for more losses. The current price action is very bearish with a negative bias below the $0.6000 handle.

During the decline, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $0.66 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair declined and traded close to the $0.5500 level. A low was formed near the $0.5550 level where buyers emerged and protected further declines. At the moment, the price is correcting higher and is trading near $0.5650. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.6792 high to $0.5551 low. Above this, the broken support near the $0.6000 handle may act as a resistance.
