Ripple Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a minor upside recovery above the $0.3600 level in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even traded above the $0.3800 level, but it struggled to clear the $0.3850 and $0.3900 resistances. There was also a rejection noted near the $0.3850 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, the price failed to stay above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.4140 high to $0.3125 low.
As a result, there was a fresh decline below $0.3700 and the price moved back in a bearish zone. During the decline, the price broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3133 low to $0.3850 high. The price tested the $0.3300 level where buyers emerged. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave also acted as a support near $0.3302. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.3600 level. More importantly, yesterday’s crucial bearish trend line is active with resistance at $0.3620 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is clearly facing a lot of hurdles on the upside near the $0.3600 and $0.3620 levels. On the downside, a break below the $0.3400 level could really increase selling pressure.
