Ripple Price (XRP) Trading Near Make-or-Break Levels

Avatar Aayush Jindal 11 months ago
  • Ripple price found support near $0.2960 and recently recovered higher against the US dollar.
  • The price traded above the $0.3100 resistance area, but it is struggling to break the $0.3200-0.3230 area.
  • The bulls are struggling to gain strength above a bearish trend line with resistance at $0.3185 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The price must gain strength above $0.3200 and $0.3230 to continue higher in the near term.

Ripple price is slowly recovering against the US Dollar, while bitcoin gained nearly 8%. XRP price is now facing a strong resistance near $0.3230, above which it could continue higher.

Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a sharp decline in bitcoin and Ethereum, pushing ripple price below $0.3200 against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even spiked below the $0.3000 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A new swing low was formed near $0.2960 and the price recently started an upside correction. It managed to move above the $0.3040 and $0.3050 resistance levels.

Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3505 high to $0.2959 low. However, the price is facing a strong resistance near the $0.3200 and $0.3210 levels. Additionally, the bulls struggle to gain strength above a bearish trend line with resistance at $0.3185 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3505 high to $0.2959 low is also near the $0.3230 level to act as a strong resistance. Above $0.3230, the 100 hourly SMA is positioned near the $0.3250 level. Therefore, the bulls are likely to struggle to gain strength above $0.3230 and the 100 hourly SMA. Should there be a successful close above $0.3230 and the 100 hourly SMA, ripple price could recover towards the $0.3500 level.

On the other hand, if the price fails to gain above $0.3200 or $0.3230, it could resume its decline. An immediate support is near the $0.3100 level, below which the price could test the $0.3000 support area.

Ripple Price Analysis XRP Chart

Looking at the chart, ripple price is currently trading near a crucial resistance at $0.3200-0.3230. It could either continue higher above $0.3230 and $0.3250 or start a fresh decline towards $0.3000. Should there be a downside break below $0.3000, the price may perhaps decline towards the $0.2850 support level in the near term.
