Ripple Price Analysis

This past week, there was a nice upward move above the $0.3500 resistance in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even broke the $0.3820 resistance, but it struggled to clear the $0.3950 and $0.4000 resistances. Later, it corrected lower, but the $0.3450-0.3500 area acted as a strong support. It bounced back and traded back above $0.3650 plus the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $0.3650 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair traded as high as $0.3943 recently and it is currently consolidating. An initial support is near $0.3800 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.3478 low to $0.3943 high. However, the key support is positioned around the $0.3700 level.
