Ripple Price Analysis: XRP/USD Nosedives, Recoveries Remain Limited

Aayush Jindal | August 14, 2018 | 7:00 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price fell significantly and broke the $0.2800 and $0.2600 supports against the US dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is intact with resistance near the $0.2950 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently correcting higher, but it could face sellers near $0.2700 and $0.2800.

Ripple price nosedived against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD may perhaps recover a few points, but it is likely to face sellers near $0.2800.

Ripple Price Decline

Yesterday, we discussed that Ripple price could drop towards the $0.2600 level against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to move past the $0.2900 and $0.3000 resistance area, which resulted in a bearish wave. The price dropped and not only broke the $0.2600 support, but it also cleared the $0.2500 support. A new monthly low was formed at $0.2471 and the price is currently correcting higher.

It is testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3088 high to $0.2471 low. Above $0.2650, the price may well trade towards the $0.2770 and $0.2800 resistance levels. Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is intact with resistance near the $0.2950 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. An intermediate hurdle is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3088 high to $0.2471 low. Therefore, there are many resistances aligned between the $0.2700 and $0.2850 levels. Any recoveries towards the $0.2800 level are likely to face sellers.
