Ripple Price Analysis

After a solid upward move in Ethereum and bitcoin, ripple price finally gained traction above $0.3050 against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair started a decent uptrend and broke the $0.3000 and $0.3060 resistance levels. The pair moved into a bullish zone above the $0.3100 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Buyers took control above the $0.3100 level, resulting in gains above the $0.3150 and $0.3200 resistance levels. The price traded close to the $0.3300 resistance and a new weekly high was formed at $0.3292.

Later, there was a sharp downside correction below $0.3260 and $0.3240. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3052 low to $0.3292 high. The decline was such that the price tested the $0.3160 support area. An immediate support is near the $0.3150-0.3160 zone. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3052 low to $0.3292 high. More importantly, there is a key bullish trend line formed with support near $0.3140 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Therefore, buyers are likely to take a stand near the $0.3160 and $0.3150 levels. If there are additional declines, the price could test the $0.3110 support. It coincides with the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3052 low to $0.3292 high. The mains support is near the $0.3095-0.3100 zone (the previous resistance).
