Ripple Price Correction
There was a solid rise in Ripple price above the $1.00 handle against the US Dollar. The price made a nice upside move and traded above the $1.10 and $1.20 resistance levels. It traded to a new all-time high at $1.2495 from where a downside correction was initiated. It has moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.6500 low to $1.2495 high.
It seems like the current correction may extend toward the $0.9000 level. On the downside, there are two bullish trend lines forming with support at $0.9500 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The trend lines support is also around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.6500 low to $1.2495 high. Therefore, the $0.9000 level is a major support and it will most likely prevent downside move in the near term. Below $0.9000, the price could extend declines toward the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.6500 low to $1.2495 high at $0.8790.
On the upside, the price may move back above $1.00. However, the next major resistances are at $1.20 and $1.25 in the short term.
