Ripple Price Analysis

After a solid uptrend above $0.3600, ripple price faced sellers near the $0.3740 and $0.3750 levels against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair started a major downside correction and traded below the $0.3600 and $0.3500 support levels. There was even a close below the $0.3400 support area. Recently, there was a short term rebound, but the price failed to surpass the $0.3480 resistance. Besides, the price failed near the 50% Fib retracement level of the drop from the $0.3748 high to $0.3280 low.

Recently, the price recovered above the $0.3300 level. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3486 high to $0.3258 low.
