Key Highlights

  • Ripple price recovered nicely and moved above the $0.2750 resistance area against the US dollar.
  • This week’s crucial bearish trend line is preventing gains with resistance near the $0.2900 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair may perhaps break the $0.2900-0.3000 resistance area for more gains in the near term.

Ripple price corrected higher against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is currently attempting an upside break above the $0.2900-0.3000 resistance zone.

Ripple Price Resistance

There was a decent support base formed near the $0.2465 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair started an upside correction and moved above the $0.2750 and $0.2800 resistance levels. Buyers even managed to push the price above the $0.2810 resistance. Moreover, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $0.3151 high to $0.2467 low.

However, the price is currently facing a tough resistance near the $0.2900 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Additionally, this week’s crucial bearish trend line is preventing gains with resistance near the $0.2900 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $0.3151 high to $0.2467 low is also near $0.2900. Therefore, a break and close above $0.2900-0.3000 won’t be easy in the near term. If ripple buyers succeed in pushing the price above $0.3000, there could be more upsides towards $0.3200 in the near term.
