Ripple Price Analysis

This past week, there was a sharp decline in ripple price from well above $0.1900 against the US Dollar. XRP/USD broke many key supports near the $0.1800 and $0.1650 support levels to enter a bearish zone.

Moreover, there was a close below the $0.1800 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The price traded as low as $0.1100 and recently started an upside correction. There was a break above the $0.1300 resistance area.

The price also recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $0.2167 high to $0.1100 low. It is now trading nicely above the $0.1420 level, but also facing a strong resistance near $0.1635.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $0.2167 high to $0.1100 low seems to be acting as a major barrier for the bulls. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.1700 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair.

If there is an upside break above the $0.1635 resistance level and the trend line, there are chances of a decent recovery in the near term.

The next major resistance is near the $0.1900 area and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Conversely, the price might fail to continue above the $0.1635 and $0.1700 resistance levels.

On the downside, a major support is visible near the $0.1405 area. A successful downside break below the $0.1400 area could start a fresh decline towards the $0.1200 support in the near term.
