Ripple Price Analysis: XRP/USD Could Break $0.2650 Support

Aayush Jindal | September 10, 2018 | 7:00 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price corrected higher recently, but it failed to break the $0.2900 resistance against the US dollar.
  • There is a key bearish trend line in place with resistance at $0.2850 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently moving lower and it remains at a risk of more losses below the $0.2650 support.

Ripple price is declining once again against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD could even break the $0.2650 support to test the $0.2500 level in the near term.

Ripple Price Resistance

Recently, Ripple price retested the $0.2650-80 support area against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair found a strong buying interest and later started an upward move above the $0.2750 level. The price even broke the $0.2800 resistance and the 50% fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3044 high to $0.2685 swing low.

However, the upside move was capped by the $0.2900 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Furthermore, the price failed to clear the 61.8% fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3044 high to $0.2685 swing low. More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line in place with resistance at $0.2850 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair was clearly rejected and it is currently moving lower towards the last swing low at $0.2680. It seems like sellers could make an attempt to clear the $0.2680 and $0.2650 levels. If they succeed, the price might drop back towards the $0.2500 support zone.
