  • The price is likely to break the $0.3480 support area and decline further in the near term.
  • There is a key bearish trend line formed with resistance near $0.3600 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair could correct below the $0.3480 and $0.3400 levels, but the $0.3250 level is a strong support.

Ripple Price Analysis

After a rejection near the $0.3790 level, ripple price corrected lower against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair declined below the $0.3700 and $0.3600 levels. Later, the price bounced back and made a few attempts to gain strength above the $0.3700 and $0.3740 resistance levels. However, buyers failed and the price dived below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from $0.3255 swing low to $0.3790 high. There was also a break below the $0.3550 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

On the downside, the $0.3480 area acted as a strong support and prevented losses on many occasions. It also represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from $0.3255 swing low to $0.3790 high. At the moment, the price is flirting with the $0.3480 support and remains at a risk of more losses. If there is a downside break and close below $0.3480, then the price might extend its decline. The next stop could be near the $0.3380 level.

The next key support is at $0.3320, where buyers could appear. If they fail to defend the $0.3320 support, the price may perhaps test the main $0.3250 support area. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.3600 level and the 100 hourly SMA. There is also a key bearish trend lines formed with resistance near $0.3600 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. A successful break above the $0.3600 level is must for a fresh increase towards $0.3700 or even $0.3740.
