Avatar Aayush Jindal 9 months ago
  • Ripple price is trading in a downtrend below the $0.2600 and $0.2650 supports against the US dollar.
  • The price is likely to extend its decline as long as it is below the $0.2650 level.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.2570 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • There could be an upside correction, but the price is likely to face sellers near $0.2600 or $0.2620.

Ripple price is facing a lot of hurdles on the upsides against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP price remains at a risk of more downsides unless it settles above $0.2650.

Ripple Price Analysis

This past week, we saw a significant decline in bitcoin, Ethereum and ripple against the US Dollar. XRP broke the key $0.2650 and $0.2600 support levels to enter a bearish zone. Moreover, there was a close below $0.2650 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more downsides and the price traded towards the $0.2500 level. A swing low was formed near $0.2460 and later the price corrected higher.

A decent support base was formed near $0.2475 and recently the price corrected above $0.2500. Moreover, there was a break above the $0.2550 resistance. However, the price struggled to gain momentum above $0.2600. The recent swing high was formed near $0.2605 and the price dipped back towards $0.2500. The recent low was formed at $0.2507 and the price is currently correcting higher.

It traded above $0.2550 plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2605 high to $0.2507 low. However, the $0.2580 level seems to be acting as a strong resistance. Additionally, ripple price failed near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2605 high to $0.2507 low. More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.2570 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Therefore, an upside break above the $0.2580 and $0.2600 levels is needed for more upsides. The next key resistance is near the $0.2620 level (the previous support). Having said that, the price must break the $0.2650 resistance to move back into a positive zone.
