Ripple Price Support
The past 2-3 sessions were decent for Ripple price as it managed to gain momentum above $0.1800 against the US Dollar. The price moved higher and broke a couple of important resistance levels including $0.1850. To initiate the uptrend, the price moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2250 high to $0.1500 low. It opened the doors for more gains above $0.1850 in the short term.
During the upside, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line with resistance at $0.1850 on the hourly chart of XRP/USD was breached. The most important break was above $0.1860 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price gained traction and moved towards $0.2000. However, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2250 high to $0.1500 low prevented gains. A high was formed at $0.1969 and the price is currently correcting lower.
