Ripple Price Analysis: XRP/USD Extending Slide

Aayush Jindal | July 11, 2018 | 7:00 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is under a lot of pressure and it recently broke the $0.4500 support against the US dollar.
  • There is a short-term declining channel in place with resistance at $0.4500 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is likely to extend the current decline towards the $0.4300 and $0.4250 levels in the near term.

Ripple price is extending losses against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is in a downtrend and it could accelerate losses below the $0.4400 level.

Ripple Price Downtrend

There was a sharp downside move from the $0.4800 pivot level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair fell sharply and cleared the $0.4750 and $0.4500 support levels. There was even a spike below the $0.4400 level and a low was formed at $0.4393. Later, there was minor correction above the $0.4400 level. However, the upside was limited by the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.4810 high to $0.4393 low.

The price is moving lower once again and it may soon break the $0.4400 level. It seems like there is a short-term declining channel in place with resistance at $0.4500 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Above the channel resistance, the price could move above the $0.4550 level. The next resistance is at the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.4810 high to $0.4393 low around $0.4600. Any further gains may perhaps face a strong resistance near the $0.4750 level.
