Ripple Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a strong drop in bitcoin and Ethereum, but dips were limited in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair broke the $0.2940 support level and traded to a new monthly low. A swing low was formed near $0.2833 and recently the price started an upside correction. There was a break above the $0.2940 and $0.3000 resistance levels to start a recovery.
Moreover, this week’s followed bearish trend line was breached with resistance near $0.3040 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. It opened the doors for more gains above the $0.3150 resistance. However, the upward move is facing hurdles near the $0.0.3230 and $0.3240 resistance levels. As a result, the price corrected gains below $0.3150 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2833 low to $0.3248 high.
However, there are many supports on the downside near the $0.3050 and $0.3040 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2833 low to $0.3248 high is also near the $0.3040 level. There is also a connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $0.3045 on the same chart.
Therefore, the price is likely to find bids near the $0.3040 or $0.3050 level. Below the trend line and $0.3040, the price may perhaps test the $0.3000 pivot level. On the upside, the main resistance is near the $0.3230 and $0.3240 levels. If there is a convincing break above $0.3240, the price could accelerate gains in the near term.
Looking at the chart, ripple price remains well bid above the $0.3040 level. As long as there is no close below $0.3000, the price is likely to continue higher. A clear break above $0.3240 might push the price to $0.3450.
