Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a bullish wave above $0.3200 in ripple price against the US Dollar, and were hoping for a test of $0.3600. The XRP/USD pair did gain momentum above the $0.3400 resistance and it even broke $0.3600. The price is now trading well above the $0.3400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The recent high was formed at $0.3678 and the price remains in a solid uptrend.

Moreover, there was a break above an ascending channel with resistance at $0.3520 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The same channel resistance may now act as a support at $0.3520. It coincides with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.3208 low to $0.3678 high. If there is a downside extension below $0.3520, the price may revisit the $0.3400-0.3420 support area. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.3208 low to $0.3678 high is also near $0.3440. Therefore, if the price corrects lower, it is likely to find a strong support above $0.3400.
