Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw the start of a downside correction from the $0.3460 high in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair declined below the $0.3300 and $0.3200 support levels. The decline was strong, but the $0.3150 support acted as a barrier for sellers. There was no close below $0.3150 and the price remained well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed at $0.3158 and later the price started a fresh upward move. It climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3460 high to $0.3158 low.

Later, there was a spike above the $0.3300 resistance level. However, there was no close above the $0.3300-0.3310 resistance zone. The price even failed to stay above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3460 high to $0.3158 low. On the upside, there are two connecting bearish trend lines in place with resistance near $0.3280 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Buyers need to take out $0.3280 and $0.3300 levels to start a fresh upward move.

On the downside, this week’s followed key bullish trend line is in place with support near $0.3250 on the same chart. If there is a downside break below the $0.3250 and $0.3220 supports, there could be more losses. The next key support is near $0.3160 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
