Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is struggling to break the $0.3180 and $0.3240 resistance levels against the US dollar.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $0.3100 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair may continue to move down below the $0.3000 and $0.2950 support levels.

Ripple price is facing an uphill task against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is likely to decline once again below $0.3000 as long as it is below $0.3100.

Ripple Price Analysis

After forming a decent support base near $0.2860, ripple price recovered a few points against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded above the $0.2950 and $0.3000 resistance levels. The price even broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3400 swing high to $0.2860 low. However, the price faced a solid resistance near the $0.3180 level.

Buyers struggled to push the price above the $0.3180 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $0.3100 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair also failed near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3400 swing high to $0.2860 low. At the outset, the price is trading below the trend line, $0.3100, and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful close above $0.3100, $0.3180, and the 100 hourly SMA is needed for buyers to gain bullish momentum. If not, the price is likely to resume its decline below $0.3000 and $0.2950.
