Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed that ripple price may correct higher above $0.4200 and $0.4300 against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair did recover higher after trading as low as $0.4011. It moved above the $0.4180 resistance and traded with a positive bias. During the upside, it broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.5180 high to $0.4011 low.

However, the price faced a strong resistance near the $0.4500 zone, which was a support earlier. There were a couple of attempts to trade above $0.4500 and $0.4520, but buyers failed. Later, the price started consolidating and it is currently trading above the $0.4260-80 support. There is also a key contracting triangle formed with resistance at $0.4460 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. A break above the triangle could push the price towards $0.4680 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An intermediate resistance is the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.5180 high to $0.4011 low at $0.4590.
