Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of more gains towards $0.3850 or $0.4000 in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair did trade higher and broke the $0.3850 resistance area. It traded close to the $0.4000 level and formed a new weekly high at $0.3947. Later, the price started a downside correction and traded below $0.3900 and $0.3800. There was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3141 low to $0.3947 high.

However, the decline was protected by the $0.3440 zone, which was a major resistance earlier. More importantly, there is a major bullish trend line in place with support at $0.3450 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3141 low to $0.3947 high acted as a support. At the outset, it seems like the price is trading nicely above the trend line and the $0.3440 support.
