Ripple Price Analysis

After a continuous failure near the $0.3700 resistance, ripple price started a downside move against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair started a significant decline below the $0.3550 and $0.3480 support levels. There was even a close below the $0.3400 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Sellers gained control and pushed the price below the $0.3320 support level. The decline was such that the price even broke the key $0.3260-0.3250 support area.

A new weekly low was formed at $0.3182 and the price settled into a bearish zone. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.3240 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3394 high to $0.3182 low. There is also a short term bearish trend line formed with resistance near $0.3260 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The $0.3260 level was a support earlier and now it could act as a strong resistance for buyers.

Above $0.3260, the next key resistance is near the $0.3310 level. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3394 high to $0.3182 low is also near the same area. If there is a clear break above the $0.3320 level, the price could recover towards the $0.3440 level. On the other hand, if there is a downside break below $0.3180, there might be a test of the $0.3150 support or even $0.3120.
