Ripple Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a major drop below the $0.3400 support in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even broke the $0.3360 and $0.3200 support levels. It traded close to the $0.3100 level and formed a low at $0.3112. Later, the price started consolidating losses with a bullish angle above $0.3200. Finally, sellers lost control, resulting in a sharp upward move above $0.3250. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $0.3817 high to $0.3112 low.

More importantly, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $0.3200 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair settled above the $0.3280 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price ran into a key resistance near $0.3360 (the previous support and range high). The price is currently consolidating above $0.3280 and the 100 hourly SMA. Buyers need to gain strength above $0.3360 and $0.3375 to push the price further higher.
