Ripple Price Analysis

This past week, we saw a decent recovery from the $0.2980 swing low in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair broke the $0.3100 and $0.3150 resistance levels to climb above $0.3200. It traded as high as $0.3232 and later started a downside move. There was a bearish push below the $0.3150 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2981 low to $0.3232 high. It opened the doors for more losses and the price declined below $0.3100.

At the outset, the price is testing an important support near the $0.3070 level. If there is a downside break below $0.3070, the price could decline towards $0.3040. It represents the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2981 low to $0.3232 high. More importantly, there is a crucial contracting triangle in place with resistance near the $0.3095 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair could dip sharply below the triangle support and test $0.3040 in the near term.

On the upside, if there is a break above the triangle, the price may test the $0.3130 resistance and 100 hourly simple moving average. Having said that, a proper break and close above $0.3150 is must for buyers to gain traction. The next key resistance is at $0.3200 and $0.3220.
