Ripple Price Analysis
This past week, XRP price extended its decline below the $0.2800 support against the US Dollar. Moreover, the price traded below $0.2620 and tested the $0.2580 support area. Later, there was a decent upward move above the $0.2650 and $0.2700 resistance levels. Moreover, the price climbed above the $0.2750 resistance plus the 100 hourly simple moving average, and traded towards the $0.2800 resistance.
A swing high is formed near the $0.2806 and it is currently correcting gains. It traded below the $0.2780 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2658 low to $0.2806 high. On the downside, there are a few key supports near the $0.2740 and $0.2720 levels. The main support is near the $0.2715 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, there is a key major bullish trend line with support near $0.2680 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. An immediate support is near the $0.2730 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2658 low to $0.2806 high. Therefore, ripple bulls might protect the $0.2700-0.2720 support area in the coming sessions.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.2780 and $0.2800 levels. A successful close above the $0.2800 resistance could open the doors for a decent ride. The main resistances are near the $0.2900 ad $0.2920 levels (the ones acted as a strong barrier this past week). Conversely, if the price fails to stay above the $0.2700 support and the trend line, it could continue to decline in the coming sessions.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is showing a few positive signs above the $0.2700 support and pivot area. However, the price must gain momentum above the $0.2800 resistance to revisit the main $0.2900 resistance in the near term.
