Aayush Jindal | June 13, 2018 | 4:28 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price came under a lot of pressure and declined below the $0.5800 support area against the US dollar.
  • There is a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.5800 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair remains at a risk of more declined below the $0.5500 level in the near term.

Ripple price is under heavy selling pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD may perhaps settle below $0.5500 to accelerate declines.

Ripple Price Resistance

There was a tiny recovery initiated yesterday above the $0.5800 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price traded above the $0.5800 level, but it faced a solid selling interest near the $0.6000 level. The stated $0.6000 level was a support earlier and now it is acting as a resistance. Moreover, the 50% fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.6400 high to $0.5600 low acted as a hurdle.

A new downside wave was initiated and the price declined below the $0.5600 low. More importantly, there was a break below a major support area near $0.5500. A low was formed near $0.5449 before the price started consolidating losses. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5991 high to $0.5449 low. Moreover, there is a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.5800 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair may correct a few points in the near term, but the $0.5800 and $0.5900 level could act as a hurdle for buyers.
