Ripple Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a sharp increase in bitcoin and most major altcoins, but ripple struggled gain strength above $0.1900 against the US Dollar. XRP price traded above the $0.1920 and $0.1950 resistance levels, but it lacked bullish momentum.
The price failed to continue above the $0.2000 resistance and remained well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing high is formed near $0.2007 and the price is currently correcting lower.
It broke the $0.1950 support area. Besides, the price traded below the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $0.1739 low to $0.2007 high.
On the downside, there are important supports near the $0.1850 and $0.1840 levels. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $0.1739 low to $0.2007 high is also near the $0.1840 level.
Therefore, a downside break below the $0.1840 support could start another decline. The next major support is near the $0.1800 level, below which ripple price will most likely break the $0.1739 low.
Any further losses might lead the price towards the $0.1650 level. On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $0.1940 and $0.1950 levels. The main hurdle is still near the $0.2000 area.
Additionally, this week’s key bearish trend line is still active with resistance near $0.2055 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. A successful close above $0.2000 and the bearish trend line is needed for a decent upward move in the near term.
