Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of more losses towards $0.3000 in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to hold gains above the $0.3200 support and later declined. It broke the $0.3145 and $0.3150 support levels to move into a bearish zone. There was a proper close below the $0.3150 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded below the $0.3050 support and even spiked below the $0.3000 level. A new intraday low was formed at $0.2983 before the price started an upside correction.

Buyers pushed the price above $0.3050 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3389 high to $0.2983 low. However, there is a strong resistance formed near the $0.3145 and $0.3150 levels. More importantly, there is a major declining channel in place with resistance near the $0.3145 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Above the channel resistance, the 100 hourly SMA is positioned near the $0.3150 level. The next key resistance is near the $0.3185 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3389 high to $0.2983 low.

If there is an upside break above $0.3150, the price could face sellers near $0.3185 or $0.3200. On the other hand, if the price fails to move above $0.3200, there could be a fresh decline. An initial support is near the $0.3050 level, below which the price may revisit $0.3000.
