  • Ripple price tested the $0.3400 resistance area on a few occasions against the US dollar.
  • The price failed to break the $0.3380-0.3400 resistance and declined below $0.3200.
  • There is a crucial contracting triangle formed with resistance at $0.3140 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair could dip to test the $0.3050 support area before it could break to the upside above $0.3150.

Ripple price seems to be preparing for the next bullish break against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP/USD could rally once it breaks the $0.3150 resistance area in the near term.

Ripple Price Analysis

This past week, we saw a nasty upward move in ripple price above the $0.3200 resistance against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair rally was triggered by the Coinbase Pro listing, but it faced a strong resistance near $0.3400. There were a few moves, with intermediate lows near $0.3150, but the price failed to clear $0.3400. There were most than two attempts to break the $0.3380-0.3400 resistance. As a result, there was a sharp decline and the price broke the $0.3250 and $0.3200 support levels.

The last swing low was formed at $0.2984 and the price later recovered above $0.3050. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3391 high to $.2984 low. The price even spiked above the $0.3180 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Having said that, sellers defended the $0.3230 level and prevented further gains. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3391 high to $.2984 low also acted as a resistance.

At the moment, there is a crucial contracting triangle formed with resistance at $0.3140 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair seems to be currently in the 5th wave, which could complete anywhere near the $0.3050 level. As long as the price is trading above the $0.3050 and $0.3000 support levels, there is a risk of an upside break. A close above the $0.3150 resistance could trigger bullish moves towards $0.3230 and $0.3300.
