Ripple Price Analysis

This past week, there was a sharp decline in ripple below the $0.3000 support area against the US Dollar. XRP/USD declined heavily and broke many supports near the $0.2950 and $0.2850 levels.

Moreover, there was a close below the $0.2850 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. As a result, there was a break below $0.2800 and the price traded as low as $0.2701.

Later, there was an upside correction above the $0.2750 resistance level. Besides, the price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.2923 high to $0.2701 low.

Ripple even recovered above the $0.2800 level, but it is facing a strong resistance near the $0.2840 and $0.2850 levels. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.2923 high to $0.2701 low is acting as a resistance.

More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line forming resistance near $0.2840 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The 100 hourly SMA is also positioned near the trend line and the $0.2850 resistance.

Therefore, ripple price must surpass the $0.2850 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA to start a decent recovery in the near term. The next key resistance is near the $0.2900 and $0.2910 levels.

On the downside, an immediate support is near the $0.2750 level. If there is a bearish break below the $0.2750 support, the price could revisit the $0.2700 support area. Any further losses may perhaps push the price towards the $0.2650 support area.
