Ripple Price Analysis
This past week, ripple price started a strong rally above the $0.1920 and $0.1950 resistance levels against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even broke the $0.2000 resistance and settled above the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).
It traded to a new monthly high at $0.2115 and recently started a downside correction. There was a break below the $0.2050 and $0.2020 support levels. The price even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.1834 low to $0.2115 high.
However, the price found support near the $0.1950 level. It seems like the price remained well bid above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.1834 low to $0.2115 high.
There is also a crucial breakout pattern forming with resistance near $0.2000 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair. On the upside, the $0.2000 level is a strong resistance. A successful break above the $0.2000 resistance might open the doors for a larger upward move.
The next key resistance is near the $0.2050 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a test of the $0.2120 level or even $0.2150. Conversely, the price might fail to surpass the $0.2000 resistance and extend its decline.
An initial support on the downside is near the $0.1980 and $0.1970 levels. The main support is near $0.1920, $0.1900, and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). A close below the $0.1900 support could start a sustained decline in the near term.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is clearly preparing for the next major break above $0.2000. It seems like it might start a fresh rally above $0.2000 as long as it is above $0.1900.
