Ripple Price Decline

Recently, we were waiting for a downside correction towards the $0.3200 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair did trade lower and tested the $0.3200 support area. However, it seems like buyers failed to hold the $0.3200 support, resulting in more declines. There was a sharp downside move and the price dropped more than 15% below the $0.3000 level.

During the decline, this week’s followed key declining channel was breached with support near $0.3230 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair even broke the $0.2800 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $0.2672 and is currently correcting higher. It traded above the 23.6% fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3397 high to $0.2672 low. However, there are many hurdles on the upside near the $0.2900 and $0.3000 levels. Above $0.3000, the price could test the 50% fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3397 high to $0.2672 low at $0.3034.
