Ripple Price Analysis

This week, XRP price made another attempt to climb above the $0.2650 resistance against the US Dollar. The price failed to remain in the positive zone above $0.2650 and later started a fresh decline. The bulls failed to keep the price above the $0.2600 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Ripple is struggling and is trading well below the $0.2580 level.

The recent decline was such that the price even broke the $0.2550 support. A swing low was formed near $0.2510 and the price is currently correcting higher. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2636 high to $0.2511 low. However, the upward move was capped by the $0.2560 level. Moreover, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.2545 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

If there is an upside break above the trend line, the price could test the $0.2580 resistance. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2636 high to $0.2511 low is also near the $0.2580 level. If the price climbs above $0.2580 level, there are chances of it revisiting the main $0.2650 resistance area in the near term.

Conversely, if the price continues to decline, it could struggle to stay above the $0.2510 and $0.2500 support levels. The main support is now near the $0.2480 level. If the price slides further, there is a risk of a breakdown below the $0.2450 level.
