Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw the start of a major decline below the $0.3100 support in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even failed to stay above the $0.3000 support and extended its decline. It broke the $0.2950 and $0.2920 support levels. The drop was sharp and sellers pushed the price below $0.2800. A low was formed at $0.2777 and the price placed itself well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, there was a sharp bounce and recovery above the $0.2850 level.

The price traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3071 high to $0.2777 low. However, the upside move was capped by the previous support near $0.2950. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3071 high to $0.2777 low acted as a resistance. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is in place with resistance at $0.2980 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Therefore, as long as the price is below the $0.2950 and $0.3000 levels, it remains in a downtrend. On the downside, an initial support is at $0.2880, followed by $0.2840.
