Ripple Price Analysis
After a strong decline, ripple price found support near the $0.3610 against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair started a decent rebound and traded above the $0.3850 and $0.4000 resistance levels. The recent recovered was convincing since the price traded towards $0.4200 and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing high was formed at $0.4295 and the price recently corrected lower. It traded below the $0.4150 support and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $0.3632 low to $0.4295 high.
The price is now approaching a key support area near the $0.4000 and $0.3950 levels. There is also a short term rising channel forming with support near $0.3950 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $0.3632 low to $0.4295 high is also near the $0.3960 level. Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also acting as a support near $0.3960. If there is a downside break below the $0.3960 support, there are chances of more losses.
The next key support is near the $0.3780 level. If there are further losses, the price may revisit the $0.3610 support area. Conversely, if the price bounce back, it could retest the $0.4200 and $0.4300 levels. Above $0.4300, the price is likely to rise towards the $0.4500 level.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is clearly trading near a few important supports near the $0.3950 level. Therefore, the price could either bounce back or break $0.3950 to decline further. The technical structure is positive and it seems like there are chances of a fresh increase above $0.4200 and $0.4300. However, a successful follow through above $0.4300 could open the doors for more gains in the near term.
