Aayush Jindal | December 17, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price recovered recently, but it faced sellers near $0.2900-0.2910 against the US dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $0.2860 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair may perhaps decline further to revisit the $0.2800 support area in the near term.

Ripple price is facing uphill task against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is under pressure and it may decline further towards $0.2800 before a fresh upward move.

Ripple Price Analysis

After trading as low as $0.2776, ripple price started an upward move against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded higher and broke the $0.2800 and $0.2850 resistance levels. It also broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.3090 high to $0.2776 low. However, the upside move was capped by the $0.2900-0.2910 zone, which was a support earlier.

Besides, there was no test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.3090 high to $0.2776 low. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $0.2860 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Therefore, the price must break the $0.2860 resistance and the $0.2900 barrier to move into a positive zone. The next resistance above $0.2900 is positioned near the $0.3000 level. On the downside, an initial support is at $0.2800, below which the price may revisit the $0.2770 swing low. If there is no break below $0.2770, the price is likely to bounce back.
