Ripple Price Support
Recently, we saw a major rise in Ripple price above the $0.2100 level against the US Dollar. The price traded with a lot of positive bias and was able to trade towards the $0.2150 level. Later, it started a correction phase and moved below $0.2100. There was a downside break of the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.1812 low to $0.2149 high.
The price also broke the $0.2000 level once. However, the downside move was protected by the $0.1980 support. It also represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.1812 low to $0.2149 high. Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line with current support at $0.1920 on the hourly chart of XRP/USD is also in place. Therefore, if the price corrects further, the $0.1920 support zone is likely to act as a major barrier for sellers.
The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near $0.1920 and the trend line support. All in all, the $0.1920 level is a good buy zone where buyers might take a stand. On the upside, an initial resistance is around the $0.2050 level. A break above the $0.2050 level could push the price back towards the 0.2150 high.
