After tagging the $0.2100 support area, ripple started a strong rise above $0.2200 resistance area against the US Dollar. Moreover, XRP price rallied above the $0.2220 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
However, the $0.2265 and $0.2270 levels acted as a strong barrier. A swing high was formed near $0.2277 and the price started trimming gains. It traded below the $0.2180 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Besides, the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $0.2097 low to $0.2277 high. Clearly, ripple price made a failed attempt to start a strong recovery above the $0.2220 and $0.2265 levels.
It is now trading below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $0.2097 low to $0.2277 high. Therefore, there is a risk of a downside break below the $0.2100 support area in the near term.
In the mentioned case, the price could even trade below the $0.2050 support area. The main support is near the $0.2000 level, where the bulls are likely to take a stand.
