Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed a possible downward move towards $0.3000 in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair did trade lower and broke the $0.3500 support level. The price tested the $0.3400 level and it is currently consolidating losses. The current price action is bearish below $0.3600 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.3753 high to $0.3400 low.

On the upside, there are many hurdles for buyers near the $0.3550 and $0.3600 levels. There is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $0.3550 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The trend line is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.3753 high to $0.3400 low. Above the trend line, the next hurdle is near the $0.3600 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Therefore, if the price corrects higher, it could find a strong resistance near $0.3500 or $0.3600.
