Aayush Jindal | April 16, 2019 | 5:00 am
  • Ripple price failed near the $0.3370 level and declined below the $0.3250 support against the US dollar.
  • The price traded to a new weekly low at $0.3134 and remains at a risk of more losses in the short term.
  • There is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near $0.3285 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair could extend the current decline and it may even revisit the key $0.3000 support area.

Ripple price failed to gain bullish momentum against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP declined below $0.3220 and it may continue to decline towards $0.3000 before completing a correction.

Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a strong buying interest above $0.3200 and ripple price recovered above $0.3280 against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even broke the $0.3350 level, but it failed to clear the $0.3370 level. It seems like the price struggled to settle above the $0.3350 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. As a result, there was a fresh decline below $0.3280 and $0.3250. The price even broke the $0.3220 and $0.3200 support levels. A new weekly low was formed at $0.3134 and the price settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

At the moment, the price is correcting higher above $0.3150. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3326 high to $0.3134 low. However, there are many resistances on the upside, starting with $0.3220 and $0.3230. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3326 high to $0.3134 low is also near $0.3230. Above $0.3230, the 100 hourly SMA could prevent gains above $0.3250. There is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near $0.3285 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Therefore, the price is likely to struggle between $0.3250 and $0.3280 in the short term. If bulls fail to surpass the trend line and $0.3300, there are chances of a fresh decline. An initial support is near the recent low at $0.3130, below which the price may revisit the $0.3100 level. However, the main support is at $0.3000, where buyers are likely to appear.
