Ripple Price Analysis
This past week, there was a strong upward move in ripple price above the key $0.3100 resistance against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair followed bitcoin and surged above the $0.3200 and $0.3220 resistance levels. The price even broke the $0.3350 level and settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The bulls pushed the price towards the $0.3400 level before it started a downside correction. There was a sharp decline below the $0.3300 and $0.3200 levels. The price revisited the previous breakout zone near $0.3040 and $0.3060.
A swing low was formed at $0.3050 recently and the price is currently moving higher. It already broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3316 high to $0.3050 low. However, the $0.3200 and $0.3220 levels are currently acting as hurdles. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3316 high to $0.3050 low is also acting as a strong resistance for the bulls. A successful close above $0.3220 barrier is likely to start a fresh rise. The next resistance is near $0.3300, above which the price could surge towards the $0.3400 resistance area.
On the downside, there are many supports above the $0.3050 and $0.3080 levels. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near the $0.3100 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. If there is a downside correction below $0.3150, the price could test the trend line support.
